In recent years, the manufacturing industry has witnessed significant developments. The increase in the number and types of automated systems in the industry is a testament to the developments taking place. However, these developments have taken place at the expense of system design problems. Design problems have become even more complex, and designers and users of automated manufacturing systems have developed new tools to cope with these problems. Manufacturing system design, a hierarchical combination of these problems, is therefore a complex activity.

Transportation involves movement of material from one location to another. Storage refers to an activity in which an item is kept at a designated place until authorization is received for it to be moved. For example, tools are stored in a tool crib and raw materials are stored in the receiving area until authorization for their release to the shop floor is received. Delay is an activity in which the item is waiting for its next planned action to take place. Items received from a supplier may be waiting at the staging area for someone to inspect the packing slip to ensure that they were received in the right quantities and without damage.

Reject, rework, correct process, but allow current batch to proceed). The drawing also gives information on where, when, and by whom the part was done, as well as its number. In addition to the engineering drawing and bill of materials, a layout analyst may have an exploded view of the drawing of the end product. This diagram provides the same information as the bill of materials but presented pictorially. Such a drawing is most useful for parts with fewer subassemblies. As the number of subassemblies and assemblies increases, the exploded diagram showing all the individual component drawings may be difficult to read.
