Volume 3, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2016, , Pages 89-107

Abstract
  This paper considers the job scheduling problem in virtual manufacturing cells (VMCs) with the goal of minimizing two objectives namely, makespan and total travelling distance. To solve this problem two algorithms are proposed: traditional non-dominated sorting genetic algorithm (NSGA-II) and knowledge-based ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 1 , Winter and Spring 2015, , Pages 61-73

Abstract
  In this paper, a new mathematical model for the problem of job scheduling in virtual manufacturing cells (VMC) is presented to minimizing the completion time of all jobs. Sequence dependent setup times of machines is considered and lot-streaming is possible. In Virtual manufacturing cells, ...  Read More
