Abstract

Cellular manufacturing (CM) has attracted much attention because it can lead to reduced throughput and increased productivity, while retaining a high-level of flexibility. Cell formation (CF) is a critical decision in CM. Mathematical programming (MP) has been widely used to model the problem, but situations in the real world usually cannot be defined precisely, and data regarding them are uncertain. Fuzzy MP is a promising approach to dealing with such a problem. This paper proposes a fuzzy multiobjective linear programming (FMLP) approach to model the CF with two conflicting objectives - minimizing the costs of dealing with exceptional elements and maximizing group efficacy.
