Methods:</p><p> Rank order Clustering</p><p> This method automates the cluster study by computing</p><p>Binary weights from a machine part matrix It orders parts and machine cells automatically

onefamily forces intelligence in application and hand</p><p>scanning after several ordering iterations</p><p>Rank Order Clustering Method:</p><p>Steps:1. For each row of the machine/part matrix (M/P/M) read the pattern of cell</p><p>entries as a binary word. Rank the rows by decreasing binary value.Equal values stay in same order.</p><p>2. Ask if newly ranked rows in the matrix are the same as previous order? Yes (STOP) No (continue)</p><p>3. Re-form the M/P/M with rows in new descending order. Now rank thecolumns by decreasing binary word weight. Columns of equal weight areleft where they are</p><p>4. Are current column weights the same as current column order? Yes(STOP), No (continue)</p><p>5. Re-form the matrix column order per rank order (highest to left) andreturn to#1.</p><p>Lets try it with our earlier problem:</p><p>PartNumber</p><p>MachineID</p><p>X 1 2 3 4 5 6</p><p>A 1 1</p><p>B 1 1</p><p>C 1 1</p><p>D 1 1 1</p><p>E 1 1 1</p><p>Step 1:</p><p>PartNumbers D.Equiv Rank</p><p>MachineID</p><p>1 2 3 4 5 6</p><p>B.Wt: 25 24 23 22 21 20</p><p>A 1 1 23+21=10 5</p><p>B 1 1 24+23=24 4</p><p>C 1 1 25+22=36 2</p><p>D 1 1 124+23+21=</p><p>263</p><p>E 1 1 125+22+20=</p><p>371</p><p>Step2:MustReorder!</p><p>Step 3:</p><p>PartNumber</p><p>B.WT. 1 2 3 4 5 6</p><p>MachineID</p><p>E 24 1 1 1</p><p>C 23 1 1</p><p>D 22 1 1 1</p><p>B 21 1 1</p><p>A 20 1 1</p><p>D.Equiv24+23</p><p>=2422+21=6</p><p>22+21+20=7</p><p>24+23=24</p><p>22+20=5</p><p>24=16</p><p>Rank 1 5 4 2 6 3</p><p>Step4:MustReorder</p></li><li><p>7/27/2019 Cellular Manufacturing Systems (1)</p><p> 8/22</p><p>6/10/20</p><p>Back at Step 1:</p><p>PartNumber D.Eqv Rank</p><p>1 4 6 3 2 5</p><p>BWt: 25 24 23 22 21 20</p><p>MachineID</p><p>E 1 1 125+24+23=56</p><p>1</p><p>C 1 125+24=48</p><p>2</p><p>D 1 1 122+21+20</p><p>=73</p><p>B 1 1 22+21=6 4</p><p>A 1 1 22+20=5 5</p><p>Orderstaysthesame:STOP!</p><p>GreatClusterResult!
