Abstract: Process planning and scheduling are two sequencing rules such as earliest due date and earliest operation due date provide better performance for all the measures higher flexibility levels. In this paper highlights the different approach of integration of process plans flexible manufacturing system. important manufacturing functions involved in any shop floor activities. Integration between process planning and scheduling in flexible manufacturing system (fms) an effective integration improved the potential for increase the system performance and enhanced decision making. The flexibility in process planning including process flexibility, sequence flexibility, and alternative process plans. The benefits of either of these flexibilities diminish at higher flexibility levels.
