This paper presents a new mathematical model for integrated dynamic cellular manufacturing systems and production planning that minimizes machine purchasing, intra-cell material handling, cell reconfiguration and setup costs. The presented model forms the manufacturing cells and determines the quantity of machine and movements during each period of time. This problem is NP-hard, so a meta-heuristic algorithm based on genetic algorithm (GA) is developed to solve it. Experimental results confirm the efficiency and the effectiveness of the proposed GA to provide good solutions, especially for medium and large-sized problems.
