The study relates to manufacturing conditions in a particular company. Flow synthesis and cell formation analysis have been conducted. A modification of methodology proposed by other researchers has assisted analysis. The main investigation is concerned with modelling, simulation and evaluation of seven alternative FMS configurations conceived for the machining cell manufacturing prismatic parts. The alternative systems encompass 6 CNC machines with (i) manual transport of materials and tools, (ii) with two and four station automated pallet changers, (iii) conveyor system, (iv) stacker crane, (v) rail guided shuttle, and (vi) AGV transport.
