Numerous advantages of flexible manufacturing systems
[FMS] result in their more common usage. Application of
FMS allows obtaining the high machining efficiency
through high flexibility, which means the possibility to
change the production to a different group of parts and to
change the size of a production batch in a very short time.
The number of problems in production management,
process control and jobs scheduling has to be solved for
proper operations of such flexible system. The paper
presents the software and data organization for a model
flexible manufacturing cell.
