Flexible manufacturing systems enable rapid changes in production. These changes may be due to changes in the product itself, such as different variations of the product or changes in conditions in the production itself. Currently, most products are designed on a computer using a variety of CAD software. Using sophisticated CAD tools, the resulting 3D product model can include not only the geometric product data but the process plan and technology data. Group technology is very often used to quickly create a technological process. Where, based on similarity, parts are assigned to individual groups and each group has the same basis for the technological process.
