In this paper, we present a system and its applications that support Japanese style of flexible manufacturing in an object-oriented fashion. This system identifies each item by its generic name and attributes values, instead of its code. Undetermined values also can be used as an attribute. This system contains process operations with their description, such as items input and output, resources used, and work-instructions. Using this information, the system can generate a sequence of process operations dynamically as the attribute of item changes.
