By Walter Terkaj, Tullio Tolio, Anna Valente (auth.), Tullio Tolio (eds.)

Manufacturing Flexibility is generally visible because the major resolution for surviving in current markets characterised by means of brief lead occasions, tight product tolerances, strain on bills, common alterations of call for and non-stop evolution of goods. even though, the competitiveness of an organization may be negatively stricken by capital extensive investments in procedure flexibility. certainly creation contexts characterised by way of mid to excessive call for quantity of good pointed out households of goods in non-stop evolution usually don't require the top point of flexibleness. Designing production platforms that optimally fulfill the creation standards represents a truly complicated challenge, considering that facets starting from production technique to technique making plans, and from situation research to functionality overview has to be thought of over the approach lifecycle. The publication addresses those interdependencies presenting an built-in method of versatile construction approach layout. on account that conventional process architectures are usually not continuously the best technique to face new construction contexts a brand new production process structure named concentrated Flexibility production platforms – FFMSs is usually brought. certainly the categorical layout of suppleness can result in hybrid platforms, i.e. automatic built-in structures which includes common goal and committed machines. this can be a key factor of FFMSs that are designed to accomplish an optimum stability among flexibility and productiveness at procedure level.

To this purpose, for instance, one metalworking firm focused on serving a small market niche characterized by few customers, highly specific requirements related to precision and quality, small volumes and low product variety. In this way, they gave up the opportunity to exploit a very strong know-how and technology to expand their market. A large company invested heavily in market research to have a better understanding of the future demand scenario. However, they then decided to enter long-term and risk-sharing contracts with car makers that allowed them to reduce the amount of installed capacity and have much of the installed flexibility unused.
