Abstract: The work in this paper is mainly on the grouping of printed circuit boards (PCBs) for Surface Mount Assembly in the electronics industry. The arrangement of PCBs among several surface mount machine lines is a typical kind of group technology (CT) problem. From literature, there are various clustering techniques developed to solve the clustering problems. In this paper, fuzzy c-means clustering (FCM) is used to solve the PCB grouping problem. The FCM is applied in a real problem and the result shows that there should be a systematic method to arrange the scheduling of PCB assemblies in electronic industry to improve the operations planning process.
