FERNANDES, Flávio César F. and PACHECO, Ricardo Ferrari. A production control system to the cellular manufacturing. Part II: ordering system and operations scheduling. Gest. Prod. [online]. 1996, vol.3, n.3, pp. 228-248. ISSN 0104-530X. http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0104-530X1996000300001.
This paper, along with that of Part I (“A decision support system for elaborating the master production scheduling”), constitutes part of a research project that aims to integrate all production scheduling activities in a semi-repetitive cellular manufacturing environment. In the paper of Part I we clarify what we mean by semi-repetitive cellular manufacturing, and in so doing, we make a production systems classification and a cellular manufacturing taxonomy. The proposed system was conceptualized and computationally implemented in three modules (product, components and operations levels). The first level is treated in the paper of Part I and the other two levels are treated in this paper.
