Abstract: This paper describes in detail about the rescheduling of production process due to the failure of cutting tool or machine breakdown during an automated batch production. In general flexible manufacturing system is incorporated in the production process to achieve the desired rate of production without any distortions during the production process. Rescheduling of production process takes place due to the following factors; poor tool life, wear in machine component, poor tool grinding, tool breakdown and machine repair. In the above stated factors, tool breakdown is the most common problem faced during most of the machining operation/production process. This paper deals in developing a algorithm to reschedule the production process during cutting tool breakdown.

Keywords: Flexible Manufacturing System, Production Process, Rescheduling, Cutting Tool Breakdown.
