Author: Tombak, Mihkel ; Chandra, PankajINSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 90/61/TM Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1990.Language: EnglishDescription: 17 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: In this paper models are presented by which flexibility for a manufacturing system can be assessed. These models enable a manager to compare different systems with respect to certain flexibility types. These models reflect the view that the flexibility of a system is a function of the technology as well as how well the system is managed. Two of the most fundamental types of flexibility, rounting and machine flexibility, are examined. The efficacy of the methods are shown through numerical examples
