Cellular manufacturing

Cellular manufacturing

refers to the arrangement of a factory into production cells consisting of a number of machines performing different operations, typically laid out in a U-shape or rough triangle rather than a traditional line, to permit one-piece flow of components and flexible deployment of the workforce, with one person operating several machines.

on the other hand process villages are groups of machines arranged in the traditional way, according to the operation performed, e.g. a grinding shop, as opposed to putting together a production cell which might include a lathe, two grinders and a machining centre.
