MULTI-CRITERIA GREY RELATIONAL APPROACH TO EVALUATING RECONFIGURABLE MANUFACTURING CONFIGURATIONS

Ateekh Ur Rehman Rehman

Abstract


In response to highly dynamic markets, manufacturing industries need alternative feasible manufacturing strategies. The strategy currently adopted is to reconfigure the existing manufacturing system. The conditions to reconfigure existing configurations change from time to time. An attempt is made to identify and apply an approach to evaluate these configurations. The paper proposes a grey relational decision-making approach. The approach takes into account multiple performance measures. The ProModel 6.2 simulation platform is adopted to examine the performance of each feasible alternative manufacturing configuration.
