Abstract

A robust manufacturing paradigm, as a part of manufacturing support system, pushes the manufacturing system towards worldwide manufacturing. That is achieved through the ability of waste removal and market responsiveness of a manufacturing system. Thus, several excellent manufacturing practices should be applied for that purpose. The selection and implementation of manufacturing practices isn’t an easy task because of the cost and time consumed. Wrong practices lead to the failure of a manufacturing system. Therefore, this paper introduces a structured approach to design the manufacturing paradigm based on Axiomatic Design and Binary Ordering algorithm to minimize the running cost of manufacturing systems. The proposed approach is applied to a case from steel industry.
