Traditional manufacturing systems are no longer able to satisfy new requirements introduced by increasingly global markets, resulting in the need for automated industries with high performance manufacturing systems. The integration between design and manufacturing and utilization of new production systems will lead to more efficient, productive operation that benefits from a short set-up time, low work-in-process inventory (WIP), and high machine utilization.

Operations Management Research and Cellular Manufacturing Systems: Innovative Methods and Approaches presents advancements in the field of operations management, focusing specifically on topics related to layout design for manufacturing environments. Chapters in this book discuss the arrangement of resources used in batch production and provide perspectives on technological, organizational, and social perspectives of cellular manufacturing systems. This book will support teachers, doctoral scholars, decision makers in industry, and students educated in operations management.

About the Author:

Vladimír Modrák is Professor of Manufacturing Technology and head of Department of Manufacturing Management at the Technical University of Kosice. He obtained a PhD degree in Mechanical Engineering at the same University in 1989. His research interests include manufacturing logistics, cellular manufacturing and other related disciplines. Prof. Modrák is Vice-Editor in Chief of Slovak Journal on Manufacturing Engineering and editorial board member of several international journals. He also served as session chair and chairman at international conferences. He lectured as Visiting Professor at University of Perugia (Italy), University of Applied Sciences Wildau (Germany), University of Czestochowa (Poland) and held seminars at the Keyworth Institute at the University of Leeds (UK), University of Salerno (Italy) and University of Perugia. Presently, he is also chairmen of the Commission for Doctoral Study in the field of Industrial Engineering. Prof. Modrák is co-author and editor of several books on manufacturing logistics, manufacturing technology and other topics.

R. Sudhakara Pandian earned his PhD in Mechanical Engineering under TEQIP fellowship from National Institute of Technology Rourkela, India in 2008. He has done post doctoral work at Technical University of Kosice, Slovak republic in 2009-10. Now he is working as an Associate Professor in the Department of Mechanical Engineering at Kalasalingam University, India where he joined during December 1998 as a Lecturer. He has around twelve years of teaching and research experiences. He is actively supervising four research scholars doing PhD work under him. He is acting as a co-investigator of a DST-India sponsored technical project in the area of cellular manufacturing system. In May 2010, Institution of Engineers (India) honored him with Young Engineers Award in the field of Production Engineering. His research interests include cellular manufacturing system, optimization techniques, operations management and logistics management.

Review:

Describes the state of the art in terms of knowledge of operations management in the advanced environment of cellular manufacturing. The book has 20 chapters, 440 pages, written by 44 authors who are mostly employed by prestigious universities and technology centers in 13 countries. The cellular manufacturing (enhanced group technology-object-driven flow with the best productivity/product among all types of production) is not a new technology, but it is the most productive one, in comparison to fixed-position (no flow) and technology-driven flow (loaded machine-tools but lower productivity per finished product, in the book called process-driven). Therefore it is the subject of intensive improvements and implementations throughout the world. Hence, the book took this kind of manufacturing system as the target for investigating the progress in producing goods for super-consumer-oriented customers in the 21st century. --Andrew Targowski, Polish Journal of Management Studies
