Multiobjective Nature of Cell Formation
This chapter discusses the appropriateness of the standard objective of minimising intercell movement, and considers possible alternative objectives for cell formation, including maximisation of intracell movement, minimisation of cross-training costs and minimisation of set-up times. The viable ways of combining several objectives in one formulation are briefly discussed.
