Use of the Manufacturing System Design Decomposition for Comparative Analysis and Effective Design of Production Systems

The focus of this paper is on the use of the Manufacturing System Design Decomposition (MSDD) to make effective cost and production system design decisions. A comparative study is conducted to illustrate how and why the total cost is reduced when the functional requirements defined by the MSDD are achieved. The ultimate goal of this research was to advance manufacturing and productionsystem development to being guided by engineering science and design rather than the common practice of duplicating another person’s or entity’s notion of the best physical implementation.
