A methodology for economic justification of flexible manufacturing systems Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • This paper develops a model for the economic justification of flexible manufacturing systems. The proposed model considers the intangible and tangible benefits resulting from the implementation of advanced computer controlled manufacturing systems. The model's structure consists of a top down approach which identifies and measures the desirability of the firm's global (strategic) as well as local (tactical) objectives. © 1988.
