In this last decades, discreet production systems have passed from a massive type manufacturing to a of variety of products. In these systems, machines execute different tasks in different parts. This generates different possible routes for each part to process. A great variety of products increases the time of design and affects the good management. And for consequence this affects the achievement of the production objectives. Furniture industry can be classified in this type of manufacturing systems, where variety of products and half volume of production are their main characteristics. In this work, located in the frame of Computer Aided Process Planning (CAPP) and Group Technology (TG), we propose a codification and classification method of solid wood parts for furniture industry. Objective of this method is to achieve a quick classification of parts of wood. This serves to the design engineer to obtain for each new part it corresponding “family “ of parts. With this family, parts can deduce the process planning associated to this new part, reducing the cycle of life of the product. On the other hand, the same classification-codification can serve to reorganize the manufacturing system in islands or cells, where each one of these cells could be able to process a family of parts. Our method, based on the OPITZ method, uses alphanumeric codes and was adapted to the furniture industry. Results show that it is possible to classify and to code real parts in the industry quickly. Numerous validations corroborate the above-mentioned.
