A Flexible manufacturing system (FMS) is the group of machines that are most preferably CNC, which will coordinate by a common control center capable of dealing with a variety of the products. It is a manufacturing system, which possesses the flexibility of adopting their machines and factory layouts that are according to the product to be produced. In this paper, performance of AGV, CART for different Layouts like Line Layout, U Layout with different speeds are studied by using flexsim software and suggested different material handling devices for different processes for different layouts.
