Abstract : Group technology provides a method of classifying manufactured parts such that pertinent information concerning the parts is retained in the assigned code number. This study investigated the effect a group technology system would have upon the manufacturing of parts used in armaments. Conclusions drawn indicate a potential productivity improvement could be realized if group technology were employed.
