Paper Title:
An Approach for the Design of Cellular Manufacturing Systems Based on Machine Utilization
  Abstract

Cell formation, which involves grouping similar parts into part families and the corresponding machines into machine cells, is one of the key research issues for designing cellular manufacturing system. In this paper, a mathematical model which targets at maximizing the machine utilization and similarity of the part groups is built. A heuristic algorithm based on clustering analysis is proposed. An example is employed to illustrate the benefit of the approach and the results suggest that the proposed approach is feasible.
