Dynamic lot sizing and tool management in automated manufacturing systems
The overall aim of this study is to show that there is a critical interface between the lot sizing and tool management decisions, and these two problems cannot be viewed in isolation. We propose "ve alternative algorithms ...
A beam search-based algorithm and evaluation of scheduling approaches for fexible manufacturing systems
(Taylor & Francis, 1998)
This paper presents a new algorithm for the flexible manufacturing system (FMS) scheduling problem. The proposed algorithm is a heuristic based on filtered beam search. It considers finite buffer capacity, routing and ...
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 ...
