MCLEAN, R.R.P.  and  BRIGHT, G.. An introduction to, and discussion of, the implementation of the advanced amalgamated agile manufacturing system. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2018, vol.29, n.4, pp.103-115. ISSN 2224-7890.

The paradigm of reconfigurable manufacturing systems (RMSs) is still relatively new in implementation, even though research into the subject has been ongoing for over 15 years. Many supporting technologies are needed to make RMSs feasible, including the addition of flexible fixturing. This paper investigates and discusses the effect of adding flexible fixturing to the reconfigurable paradigm, and proposes solutions to problems that are inherent in RMSs and in the addition of flexible fixturing.
