A manufacturing system often involves significant amount of investment and its social and economic impacts are enormous. As a result, manufacturing system design plays a critical role in a business perspective and draws more attention from research community and becomes an important subject in recent years. The cost in manufacturing systems is usually influenced by the Design of the Material Flow System and the Facility Layout. To improve flexibility and performance of Material Flow Systems and to reduce costs of engineering‐intensive functions, complex tasks must be processed. A totally methodology for development and control of the production lines and handling systems is needed. The Manufacturing Data Management System must include all related domains. Today powerful single design tools for Material Flow Systems and Manufacturing Execution Systems are state‐of‐the‐art. Missing are integrated methods and data models for totally development, control and change processes of manufacturing systems, meeting the targets of flexible use of Material Flow Systems, production‐ and assembly‐ lines. The purpose of this Thesis is to figure out an approach for an integrated methodology for development, control and optimization tasks, as well as study the existing design methodologies and find out the system requirements of Material Flow Systems and Manufacturing Systems.
