Paper Title:
A Two-Stage Method for Cell Formation Based on Machine Utility
  Abstract

Cell formation is one of the key issues in cellular manufacturing research. A two-stage cell formation method is proposed. With this approach, parts are first clustered into different groups based on similarity factor; then, machines are assigned to these part groups according to the principle of maximum machine utility. Examples show that the proposed method is feasible in grouping parts and machines into cells so that machine utilization and manufacturing systems efficiency are improved.
