Examines the facts that have led to the adoption of an FMS installation and CADCAM system. Discusses the requirements of the installation: complete machining, off‐line tool and jig preparation, full computer integration, and organisation of resources. Concludes that although the installation has increased unit costs, it has also increased productivity and flexibility while reducing throughput time and so can be considered economically viable.
