Flexible Machining System (FMS)
  • Masayuki Matsui
Part of the International Series in Operations Research & Management Science book series (ISOR, volume 125)

Flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) are networks of production systems that are linked by material handling systems (MHSs) that are controlled by a computer. The performance evaluation of FMSs with infinite local buffers was first presented by Solberg [7].
