Flexible Manufacturing System

The Flexible Manufacturing System (FMS) concept prioritizes automated manufacturing equipment and/or cross-trained work teams that can make a variety of product or part configurations. From an equipment standpoint, an FMS is typically a group of computer-based machine tools with integrated material handling that is able to produce a family of similar parts.
