Özet

An operational approach to conceptualization and the measurement of manufacturing flexibility is presented. A critical review of selected measures from the literature is provided in the context of the operational approach. A flexibility measure is proposed. A formulation and the features of the proposed measure are discussed. An application of the measure is demonstrated through a hypothetical example. Using the same example, selected flexibility measures from the literature are evaluated. The performance of the measures and the proposed measure are compared.
