In this paper we investigate flow shop production systems with manufacturing cells. We develop a procedure which enables us to determine the optimal number of machines for each operation, the optimal assignments of operations to manufacturing cells, and the optimal number of robots required in each cell such that the total production cost per unit is minimized.
