Abstract

This book, which is available at http://www.igi-global.com/book/operations-management-research-cellular- manufacturing/51935, 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.
