Scheduling in a three-machine flexible robotic cell
In this study, a three-machine flexible robotic manufacturing cell in which the CNC machines are used is considered. These machines are highly flexible and are capable of performing several different operations. Each machine ...
A beam search algorithm to optimize robustness under random machine breakdowns and processing time variability
(Institute of Industrial Engineers, 2007)
The vast majority of the machine scheduling research assumes complete information about the scheduling problem and a static environment in which scheduling systems operate. In practice, however, scheduling systems are ...
Pure cycles in flexible robotic cells
In this study, an m-machine flexible robotic manufacturing cell consisting of CNC machines is considered. The flexibility of the machines leads to a new class of robot move cycles called the pure cycles. We first model the ...
