Abstract
Manufacturing Systems Management (MSM) can be defined as a functional domai n that involves all of the activities (such as design, implementation, oper ations and monitoring) needed to regulate and optimize a manufacturing syst em as it progresses through its life cycle. A previously proposed framework has specified the key functional areas of MSM, outlining the contents and relationships within them, and then logically integrating these into a clos ed-loop to provide the basis for the development of a set of consistent par ameters and procedures. One importance element of this framework is a Manuf acturing Strategy Analysis (MSA) to Manufacturing System Design (MSD) inter face, which helps to associate manufacturing strategic concerns with the su bsequent system design requirements. This paper specifies the structure of a MSA/MSD interfacing model within the context of the MSM framework. Provid ing a step-by-step guide through the complete MSA/MSD cycle, the model is b ased on the results from extensive analysis of the relevant methodologies a nd techniques available in the literature, and data gathered through indust rial practice. Following a description of the functionality, processes and tools along its MSA/MSD cycle, various new features of this model will be d iscussed and a number of case studies will be presented to illustrate its p ractical application.
