dc.description.abstractAlthough a significant amount of research has been carried out in the scheduling of flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs), it has generally been focused on developing intelligent scheduling systems. Most of these systems use simple scheduling rules as a part of their decision process. While these scheduling rules have been investigated extensively for a job shop environment, there is little guidance in the literature as to their performance in an FMS environment. This paper attempts to investigate the performances of machine and AGV scheduling rules against the mean flow-time criterion. The scheduling rules are tested under a variety of experimental conditions by using an FMS simulation model.en_US
