Effect of load, processing time and due date variation on the effectiveness of scheduling rules
(Taylor & Francis, 2002)
In real manufacturing environments, variations in production factors (i.e. pro- cessing time, demand, due-dates) are inevitable facts. All these dynamic changes, together with random disturbances (e.g. machine breakdowns) ...
Simulation optimization: a comprehensive review on theory and applications
(Taylor & Francis, 2004)
For several decades, simulation has been used as a descriptive tool by the operations research community in the modeling and analysis of a wide variety of complex real systems. With recent developments in simulation ...
A simulation based learning meachanism for scheduling systems with continuous control and update structure
A simulation based learning mechanism is proposed in this study. The system learns in the manufacturing environment by constructing a learning tree and selects a dispatching rule from the tree for each scheduling period. ...
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 ...
