A performance evaluation methodology for selecting flexible manufacturing systems (FMS) is described. Flexible manufacturing systems incorporate numerical control machines with robotic material-handling units working automatically under computer control. The relevant issues are addressed by a performance evaluation framework that treats both tangible and intangible decision factors. The analysis is carried out through the analytic hierarchical process. A real industrial application of the model is reported.
