A new grouping measure for evaluation of machine-component matrices

1996 International Journal of Production Research  
The machine-component matrix is the main input to most machine-component grouping models med in cellular manufacturing. A number of measures have been developed for performance evaluation of rnachinc-(:omponent grouping algo rithms. In this paper, the relationship between these measures and the performance of the corresponding cellular manufacturing system is evaluated and a new grouping measure is developed which is more consistent in predicting the suitability of a manufacturing system for
