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 ...
Joint lot sizing and tool management in a CNC environment
We propose a new algorithm to solve lot sizing, tool allocation and machining conditions optimization problems simultaneously to minimize total production cost in a CNC environment. Most of the existing lot sizing and tool ...
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 ...
