Abstract

This paper is intended to provide a comprehensive literature review on complexity of manufacturing/industrial systems. The study aims to review the current complexity status and measurements approaches. The review covers articles published on major journals related to the topic presenting state-of-the-art results on the complexity analyses and measurements. The contribution of this study lies in the taxonomy of detailed description and analysis of methodologies used in the literature. This analysis shows that the majority of these articles only explain the complexity concepts as a framework and complexity measurements related to structural and dynamical issues.
