Abstract
The increasing complexity of manufacturing systems in highly competitive environments motivates the need for refinement of the design of manufacturing systems. The application of systems engineering is still undeveloped in some industries, but the potential benefits are substantial. However, there exists a chasm between the theory and practice of systems engineering applied to the design of manufacturing systems and existing lack of information sharing among organizations to enable right first time practices. To close this gap, the authors suggest systems engineering methods for supporting and enabling more effective and efficient design of manufacturing systems.
