Scheduling with tool changes to minimize total completion time under controllable machining conditions
Scheduling under controllable machining conditions has been studied for some time. Scheduling with tool changes, particularly due to tool wear, has just begun to receive attention. Though machining conditions impact tool ...
Scheduling with tool changes to minimize total completion time: basic results and SPT performance
We consider a single machine sequencing problem subject to tool wear, where the objective is to minimize the total completion time. We briefly describe the problem and discuss its properties, complexity and solution. ...
Scheduling with tool changes to minimize total completion time: a study of heuristics and their performance
(John Wiley & Sons, Inc., 2003)
The machine scheduling literature does not consider the issue of tool change. The parallel literature on tool management addresses this issue but assumes that the change is due only to part mix. In practice, however, a ...
