AbstractOperation flexibility is one of the eight common types of flexibility that exist in flexible manufacturing systems. Dispatching rules are commonly used in loading the machines. This paper studies the effects of different levels of operation flexibility and various dispatching rules on the performance of a flexible manufacturing system. The system performance considered is mean flow time. Simulation results indicate that the mean flow time cannot be always improved by increasing the level of operation flexibility. Altering the dispatching rules seems to have a more significant effect on the mean flow time performance than changing the level of operation flexibility.
