Match-up scheduling under a machine breakdown
When a machine breakdown forces a modified flow shop (MFS) out of the prescribed state, the proposed strategy reschedules part of the initial schedule to match up with the preschedule at some point. The objective is to ...
Scheduling of automated guided vehicles in a decision making hierarchy
(Taylor & Francis, 1996)
Scheduling efforts made without considering the special limitations of the material handling system might lead to infeasible results. An analytical model is proposed, first, to incorporate the automated guided vehicle (AGV) ...
Tool magazine arrangement and operations sequencing on CNC machines
two-phase approach is developed to solve the tool magazine arrangement and operations sequencing problems. The overall aim is to minimize the total manufacturing cost by utilizing the benefits of tool sharing concept and ...
Dynamic lot sizing and tool management in automated manufacturing systems
The overall aim of this study is to show that there is a critical interface between the lot sizing and tool management decisions, and these two problems cannot be viewed in isolation. We propose "ve alternative algorithms ...
