Flexible Manufacturing 
Systems (FMS)
Introduction 
1. A FMS consists of a group of programmable 
production machines interconnected by means 
of an automated material handling and storage 
system and controlled by an integrated 
computer system to produce a variety of parts
at non- uniform product rates, batch sizes and 
quantities .
2. A FMS is characterised by the following:
Variety of products ,small volume of products, 
Less manufacturing lead time ,high quality , 
Low cost.
