Abstract: In modern days competition is increasing in industries so time and cost are important factors. In this paper we present case studies on matrix method, so that best sequence with minimum time, minimum cost and reduced penalty (job changeover time from one machine to another) recommended for a particular product manufactured is achieved. Here two cases on idler pipe and idler shaft are analyzed and best sequences are generated.
Keywords: Matrix method, cellular manufacturing, path matrix Pij, total matrix Tij.
