In this paper, a flexibility quantification based on fuzzy cash flow analysis is held for computer integrated manufacturing systems. Flexibility for continuous improvement, flexibility for trouble control, flexibility for work force control, and flexibility for work-in-process control are quantified by using fuzzy present worth analysis. Formulas for both inflationary and non-inflationary conditions are derived.
