Cellular manufacturing is a way in which similar parts are grouped together to process the parts with ease, this is an application of the group technology. This paper focuses on the application of group technology in the gear manufacturing industry. By the usage of DES (Discrete event simulation) the entire manufacturing process is modeled in terms of queuing model. It is found that with the few changes in the process work flow higher productivity rates can be achieved and with the assumption that 75 % of the inspection parts meet with the required standards
