New manufacturing system paradigms have been introduced in isolated discussions among academician in corresponds to the rapid changes of business environment towards manufacturing sustainability.However,the relationships among the introduced manufacturing systems have never been discussed.Motivated with the manufacturing system paradigms,it is possible to formulate a concept of manufacturing system that is able to fit in any changes of business environment.Thus,the objective of this paper is to analyse the compatibility of fitness components between human fitness system and manufacturing system.The analysis was done through an analogical study of human fitness components which was later compared to the concept of the existing manufacturing systems such as the Lean Manufacturing,Agile Manufacturing,and Reconfigurable Manufacturing,etc.In addition,relationships between the fitness components were clarified through a literature study.Result of the study indicates that the components of human fitness system were compatible with the concept of existing manufacturing systems.As a conclusion,the components of human fitness system can be adopted as fitness components in developing a concept of Fit Manufacturing system that enables manufacturing sustainability.
