In this paper, a base for a manufacturing system design and evaluation method is proposed. The main goal within the project is to create a method that addresses important aspects with manufacturing system design. The building blocks of the method should give reliable and accurate data and also, display the relationships between the different parts that form a manufacturing system. Building blocks include, for example, a management strategy for designing manufacturing systems to comply with demands for mass customisation. Partial goals are to find and evaluate these building blocks as well as to examine how different changes in a manufacturing system influence other factors than those intended to improve.
