An expert system for solving group technology (GT) problems has been developed, considering simplified models of industrial GT problems. It solves problems of varying characteristics using in-built algorithms, namely average linkage clustering algorithms (ALC), cluster identification algorithms (CI) and generalised p-median model. Depending upon the characteristics of GT problem, a suitable algorithm is selected. The algorithm takes the required inputs for the problem and gives the output, which consists of machine cells with corresponding part families and the bottleneck parts, if any.
