Abstract

The changeability of manufacturing systems enhances their adaptation to the increasingly dynamic market conditions and severe global competition. The effect of manufacturing systems changeability objective on their design process is discussed in this chapter at different levels, from the general frameworks, where the main objectives are stated, to the finest synthesis details, where product and production modules are designed. The conventional design frameworks are discussed and critiqued, and the tendency of most manufacturing systems design processes to be uni-directional is pointed out. Furthermore, a new manufacturing systems design framework is proposed to overcome the uni-directionality drawback of conventional design frameworks and help achieve a closer integration of both products and systems design and evolution.
