A neural network model for scheduling problems
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) have been successfully applied to solve a variety of problems. This paper proposes a new neural network approach to solve the single machine mean tardiness scheduling problem and the minimum ...
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 ...
