This paper gives a short outline of contents, main reasons, planning and development procedures, success determining factors, results and, last but not least, side effects of 82 FMS - related projects carried out by the department "Manufacturing Systems" at the Fraunhofer-Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation (IPA) for industrial companies during the period 1979 until 1988. Neither did all of those projects aim at and lead to a complete FMS-installation, nor has each question which arose during this work also been answered - nevertheless, not only quite a few successful installations of entire systems, but also the stimulations for or realizations of several new developments and, in particular, many side effects and previously unexpected improvements within the customer's plants show, that every single FMS - related project has been and will be worth all the efforts undertaken for it.
