Abstract

There are only three ways to truly integrate the factory: by integrating the information systems; by integrating the control systems; by integrating the material flow systems. The method of achieving these integration schemes that is most often discussed is group technology (GT). This article defines what group technology really is; briefly traces the history of GT from Taylor in the U. S. and Mitrofanov in Russia to the present; discusses the fundamentals of GT; clarifies the role of a classification and coding system; summarizes the potential applications of GT in a manufacturing environment; outlines some extensions of the typical applications necessary to support the factory of the future; and quantifies the cost/benefit analysis of a GT system.
