Performance Evaluation of a Hierarchical Production Scheduling Policy for a Single Machine with Earliness and Tardiness
This paper considers the problem of scheduling a given set of jobs on a single machine in order to minimize the total earliness and tardiness costs. The scheduling horizon is divided into elementary periods; jobs have ...
Formation of Manufacturing Cells: An Algorithm for Minimizing the Inter-Cell Traffic.
In this paper, we propose a parametrized algorithm to decompose a manufacturing system into manufacturing cells. The objective is to minimize the inter-cell traffic. The algorithm is based on a proximiq index defined between ...
Generalization and Implementation of the GP Method to Generate Manufacturing Cell and Part Families.
We present an algorithm that considers a set of product types and a set of machine types. The algorithm works out a partition of p subsets of product types, called product families, and a partition of q subsets of machine ...
Manufacturing Cell Formation in the Case of Multi-Manufacturing Processes
The determination of a good decomposition of a manufacturing system into manufacturing cells, when various manufacturing processes are available for each type of product, is addressed in this paper. We propose a simple ...
