Summary This paper provides a procedure to address all three phases of the design for cellular manufacturing namely parts/machines grouping, intra-cell and inter-cell layout designs concurrently. It provides a platform to investigate the impact of the cell formation method on intracell and inter-cell layout designs and vice versa by generating multiple efficient layout designs for different cell partitioning strategies. This approach enables the decision maker to have wider choices with regard to the different number of cells and to assess various criteria such as travelling cost, duplication of machines, space requirement against each alternative. The performance of the model is demonstrated by applying it to an example selected from literature.
