To adapt and adjust the existing manufacturing systems to fluctuating requirements of product demand and variety, flexibility has to be raised to new levels over what was usually provided in the past. The primary issue then is to how to define and implement such flexibility, to ensure changes of the machining systems in accordance with the completely new, non-predictable machining tasks required for new products.
