Application of Group Technology in Mechanical Processing
The principle of group technology is presented in this paper. Similar machining pieces are grouped and processed according divided groups for enlarging processing batch in multi-variety parts production. In order to obtain synthetic economy results, group technology should be overall implemented in multi-species and small-batch productive system by adopting high effective processing method or equipment to get better economy efficiency which is able to obtain from large-batch machining processes. Group technology optimizes the processing subsequence of parts as well as improves production and economy efficiency which is an advantage for enterprises to develop forward professional production.
