Due to the fact the initial FMS was introduced in the mid-1960s, the quantity installed worldwide has grown to just about 500, with about half of them either in Japan or the United States and the other half in Europe. A a lot much more popular version of versatile automation is the versatile manufacturing cell (FMC), which is a scaled-down version of FMS that consists of one or a very little group of NC machines that may possibly or could not be linked to a supplies handling mechanism. The FMC does not have a supplies handling program controlled by a personal computer, which moves parts to the proper machines, as does the much more sophisticated FMS.
