System

A set of
components
that are
connected

in a way to perform
a
task

in an
environment,

which fulfills a mission.

Example

Components are:
drive, frame, ram,
bed, etc. They are
connected in a
definite way to
perform a task or
function

4

Manufacturing system

A system that has an
input of material
and has an
output of
material or part
, and the output material differs from the
output material in a certain area that is meaningful.

Example

Input

Output

Manufacturing system: classification

Manufacturing systems have four levels:




1. Enterprise



2. Shop floor



3. Cell or line



4. Machine

Enterprise
: a system that has its own
independent management.


Shop floor
: a sub
-
system of an enterprise
where manufacturing activities are carried
out.


Cell or line
: a group of machines that
produce a part.


Machine
: a single entity that changes the
input material

10

Automation

Perform functions using machines without human actions.


Automation can be classified into two types:


-

Soft automation (information flow automation)

-

Hard automation (material flow automation)

Robots

Machines that their functions or operations can be
reprogrammable; that is, the change of codes can lead to the
change of machines’ functions
