Abstract: Reconfigurable Manufacturing Systems provide the functionality and capacity needed, when needed. The Reconfigurable Machine Tool (RMT) plays a pivotal role in the fulfilment of this objective through their modular structure consisting of basic and auxiliary modules along with the open architecture software. In the present work, a novel approach based on the module interactions and machine capability is proposed to measure the machine reconfigurability and operational capability of an RMT. The developed performance measures along with cost are considered as the multiple objectives for the optimal machine assignment for a single part flow line allowing paralleling of similar machines. The multi-objective optimisation problem in hand is targeted in two phases. In the first phase, non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm II is applied to obtain the non-dominated solutions. In the subsequent stage, a multiple attribute decision-making approach is employed to rank the pareto frontiers. The proposed solutions are ranked based on Shannon entropy weight and Technique for Order Preference by Similarity to Ideal Solution method. The study reveals that the developed performance measures along with the hybrid approach have a great potential in handling the RMS optimisation and cost-benefit issues. © 2012 Copyright Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
