In a small‐lot manufacturing facility, process planning is the task of specifying a machine series that will produce a certain part from a given raw material. Traditionally, the same machine path or routing is followed each time the part is released for manufacture. A prototype system is developed which adapts routings according to job specification (process quantity and due date), as well as shop conditions (the relative cost and availability of alternative resources). The performance of this system is then compared against the traditional fixed method, as well as two single‐focus, adaptive strategies (least‐cost and least‐load), drawn from research.
