In this paper a fuzzy c-means (FCM) based cell formation (CF) algorithm is used to design cellular manufacturing in a tractor manufacturing firm. In cell formation problems as the size of the part-machine matrix increases the problem gets complicated. Fuzzy models are suitable for CF problems by allowing the representation of uncertain information. FCM based algorithms seem to be efficient for cell formation problems at cellular manufacturing design.
