Abstract

This paper outlines the state-of-the-art in studying flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) using analytical queueing network models. These include Jackson networks, reversible networks and approximate models of non-product-form networks. The focus is on identifying the major features of the models as they relate to the operational characteristics of FMSs. Prescriptive models concerning the optimal design and/or operational control of FMS networks are also discussed. © 1986 J.C. Baltzer A.G., Scientific Publishing Company.
