A new fuzzy clustering algorithm was proposed for manufacture cell formation to avoid infeasible and non-optimal solutions with Fuzzy C-Means. An improved subtract algorithm was used for creation to avoid local optimization, a new distance function was developed to avoid clustering errors among components caused by Euclidean distance, and a best-solution-selection procedure was advocated to avoid final infeasible solution caused by unsuitable algorithm stop-parameter selection. Large-scale comparative tests with 10 literature data sets and 90 random-generated data sets have verified superiority of the proposed algorithm.
