Tool allocation and machining conditions optimization for CNC machines
In the literature, there exist many variations of machining economics problem in terms of modelling approaches and solution methodologies. However most of the existing studies focus on the single machining operation which ...
Integrated scheduling and tool management in flexible manufacturing systems
(Taylor & Francis, 2001)
A multistage algorithm is proposed that will solve the scheduling problem in a flexible manufacturing system by considering the interrelated subproblems of processing time control, tool allocation and machining conditions ...
An overview of design and operational issues of kanban systems
(Taylor & Francis, 1999)
We present a literature review and classification of techniques to determine both the design parameters and kanban sequences for just-in-time manufacturing systems. We summarize the model structures, decision variables, ...
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 ...
