A flexible manufacturing system (FMS) is a group of numerically-controlled machine tools,interconnected by a central control system. The various machining cells are interconnected,via loading and unloading stations, by an automated transport system. Operational flexibilityis enhanced by the ability to execute all manufacturing tasks on numerous product designs insmall quantities and with faster delivery. It has been described as an automated job shop andas a miniature automated factory. Simply stated, it is an automated production system that produces one or more families of parts in a flexible manner. Today, this prospect of automation and flexibility presents the possibility of producing nonstandard parts to create acompetitive advantage.
Definition

³A Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) is a production system consisting of a setof identical and/or complementary numerically controlled machine which are connectedthrough an automated transportation system´.Each process in FMS is controlled by a dedicated computer (FMS cell computer).The concept of flexible manufacturing systems evolved during the 1960s when robots, programmable controllers, and computerized numerical controls brought a controlledenvironment to the factory floor in the form of numerically-controlled and direct-numerically-controlled machines.For the most part, FMS is limited to firms involved in batch production or job shopenvironments. Normally, batch producers have two kinds of equipment from which tochoose: dedicated machinery or unautomated, general-purpose tools. Dedicated machineryresults in cost savings but lacks flexibility. General purpose machines such as lathes, millingmachines, or drill presses are all costly, and may not reach full capacity. Flexiblemanufacturing systems provide the batch manufacturer with another option²one that canmake batch manufacturing just as efficient and productive as mass production.The first FMS was patent in
