FERNANDES, Flávio César F. and TAHARA, Creusa Sayuri. A production control system to the cellular manufacturing part I: decision support system for elaborating the master production scheduling. Gest. Prod. [online]. 1996, vol.3, n.2, pp. 135-155. ISSN 0104-530X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-530X1996000200002.
This paper and that of Part II (ordering system and operations scheduling) aims to integrate all production scheduling activities in a semi-repetitive cellular manufacturing environment. With the aim of clarifying what we mean by semi-repetitive cellular manufacturing, we have made a production systems classification and a cellular manufacturing taxonomy. The proposed system was conceptualized and computationally implemented in three modules (product, component and operation levels). The first level is treated in this paper and the other two are treated in the Part II.
