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 ...
Non-identical parallel CNC machine scheduling
(Taylor & Francis, 2003)
In this study, we solve the non-identical parallel CNC machine scheduling problem. We have two objectives: minimizing the manufacturing cost (comprising machining, non-machining and tooling costs) and minimizing the total ...
