Abstract

Dedicated Manufacturing Systems (DMS), Adjustable Manufacturing Systems (AMS), Flexible Manufacturing Systems (FMS) are the three basic types of manufacturing systems commonly used in manufacturing industries, while Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems (RMS) is considered as the future of manufacturing systems. In this paper we will give an analytical and qualitative comparison among DMS, AMS, FMS and RMS from the viewpoint of cost, adaptability, complexity, production rate and ramp-up time.
