Describes a philosophy of cell formation for cellular manufacturing which reasons that an analysis of the sequential processing of components is a fundamental requirement in understanding the problem, as well as being a necessity in generating the subsequent solution. Includes a résumé of the problems encountered in processing the pertinent industrial data coupled with an outline of the computer‐based methodology used to implement the philosophy.
