This volume is Volume V - Group Technology Application (User 2 Manual) Group Technology is the grouping of items with similar characteristics to take advantage of their similarities. The first step in implementing group technology is developing a classification and coding scheme. The items are classified according to similar characteristics and a meaningful code, which would reflect these characteristics, is assigned. After items are classified and their codes are stored in a data base, items with similar attributes can be retrieved.
