At times, Production equipment it may be necessary to backtrack to higher-level problems. 8, involves the solution of the following two problems: production and material-handling equipment selection and facility layout (Kusiak and Heragu, 1988). 9). Group technology (GT) provides the basis for the four-level hierarchical approach to design cellular manufacturing systems. It should be emphasized that the four-level hierarchical approach is generally suitable only for manufacturing systems Machine layout that produce a large number of components and for which manufacturing activities can be decomposed into almost mutually independent cells.
