Group technology is an important technique in the planning of manufacture that allows the advantages of flow production organization to be obtained in what otherwise would be jobbing of batch manufacture. The approach is to arrange separate machines groups with appropriate internal group layout to suit the production of specific component families, formed in accordance with the similarity of operations that to be performed on them. Due to the limited time available for this research project, only one of the techniques of Group Technology will be use to conduct the analysis, which is the Production Flow Analysis. The reason of choosing this technique is because it is more simple and easy to implement and also due to lots of research and background has been done on this technique.
