An analysis of heuristics in a dynamic job shop with weighted tardiness objectives
(Taylor & Francis, 1999)
Meeting due dates as a reflection of customer satisfaction is one of the scheduling criteria that is frequently encountered in today's manufacturing environments. The natural quantification of this qualitative goal involves ...
A beam search-based algorithm and evaluation of scheduling approaches for fexible manufacturing systems
(Taylor & Francis, 1998)
This paper presents a new algorithm for the flexible manufacturing system (FMS) scheduling problem. The proposed algorithm is a heuristic based on filtered beam search. It considers finite buffer capacity, routing and ...
Part-machine grouping using a multi-objective cluster analysis
In the existing literature, the part-family formation problem is handled either by the coding systems or the cluster analysis. In this study, we propose a new method that will consider both design and manufacturing attributes ...
A note on the within-cell layout problem based on operation sequences
(Taylor & Francis, 1996)
The existing studies in the literature usually ignore the within-cell layout problem while forming part families and manufacturing cells. A new approach is proposed to solve the part-family and machine-cell formation problem ...
Joint lot sizing and tool management in a CNC environment
We propose a new algorithm to solve lot sizing, tool allocation and machining conditions optimization problems simultaneously to minimize total production cost in a CNC environment. Most of the existing lot sizing and tool ...
