This article portrays a chronological review of the influence of artificial neural network in group technology applications in the vicinity of cellular manufacturing systems. The research trend is identified and the evolvement is captured through a critical analysis of the literature accessible from the very beginning of its practice in the early 90s till the 2012. Analysis of the diverse ANN approaches, spotted research pattern, comparison of the clustering efficiencies, the solutions obtained and the tools used make this study exclusive in its class.
