What is a Flexible Manufacturing System? What are the Advantages of an FMS?

While automation systems can be applied to fixed applications, where they are designed to make a specific product, they are increasingly used in flexible manufacturing systems. A flexible manufacturing system, or FMS, consists of a group of automated machines linked by a material handling system. It also includes a controller that can be programmed to make a variety of products, product styles, or parts.

One advantage of an FMS is cost reduction. There are three reasons for the increased savings:

  • One set of equipment can produce multiple products, so less equipment is needed.
  • Setup time is reduced because the system can be reprogrammed to change products instead of being physically retooled.
  • Small batch runs of each product can be produced because product changes can be done by reprogramming, so inventory costs are less.
