This is the dissertation of the study of design characteristics about the practical flexible manufacturing system (PFMS). The basic ideas to analyze the manufacturing system which is the automatically operated is dependant on the various manufacturing procedures in factory. PFMS is the very useful equipment for students and trainee of production lines. This system is composed of hardware and software sub systems i.e. control and test unit and personal computer with software. The PFMS can be developed with design concepts and approved the capability of first article with functional tests. The PFMS module will be very useful for the manufacturing drill system in universities and practical fields. The flexible manufacturing systems have various subsystems appropriated for the final manufacturing products. Therefore the systems have the various kinds of hard wares as well as softwares. We study the software for the practical flexible manufacturing system designed in the Halla University and specially the design concept and using specification of the SCARA (Selective Compliance Assembly Robot Arm) robot which is used for the movement of the product is analyzed and introduced in this dissertation.
