Cellular manufacturing systems are widely used due to their advantageous capability of combining the flexibility of the job-shop and the productivity of the flow-shop. In recent years, the reduction of the product life cycle, variation in demand products, and introduction of new technologies, have driven the manufacturing companies to improve responsiveness, thus reducing the cellular manufacturing life cycle with a focus on re-designing the cells. Another issue concerns the sustainability of the manufacturing systems due to the introduction of energy costs in the design model of cellular manufacturing systems. This study is an overview of the more recent works on design approaches to improve the responsiveness and the models to support the sustainability of cellular manufacturing systems. The analysis of the literature review highlights the main findings and suggests future development paths considering the open problems in this field.

Abstract

Cellular manufacturing systems are widely used due to their advantageous capability of combining the flexibility of the job-shop and the productivity of the flow-shop. In recent years, the reduction of the product life cycle, variation in demand products, and introduction of new technologies, have driven the manufacturing companies to improve responsiveness, thus reducing the cellular manufacturing life cycle with a focus on re-designing the cells. Another issue concerns the sustainability of the manufacturing systems due to the introduction of energy costs in the design model of cellular manufacturing systems. This study is an overview of the more recent works on design approaches to improve the responsiveness and the models to support the sustainability of cellular manufacturing systems. The analysis of the literature review highlights the main findings and suggests future development paths considering the open problems in this field.
