Abstract

Considers the installation of a flexible manufacturing system at French aero engine manufacturer SNECMA. Examines the preliminary study, the computer hierarchy of the FMS, the physical layout, the workforce and training, and the problems encountered. Concludes that while there have been minor problems, and further FMS′s are unlikely, the current FMS is a source of pride to the company.
