Abstract: Shorter product life cycle, variable demands and international competitions become challenging issues nowadays hence, most of manufacturer made attempts to select type of manufacturing system for their company which be able to respond to these issues. Group technology [GT] is one of the most recent manufacturing philosophies which is able to cover the existed problems. Cellular manufacturing system [CMS] is one of the main applications of GT during these decades. Importance of CMS during these decades makes author motivated for haveing a brief review on literature of this topic. This paper made attempts to have a brief review on Cellular manufacturing system and its main components.
Keywords: Cellular manufacturing system, Cell formation, Machine layout Design.
