This paper deals with a realistic variant of flowshop scheduling, namely the hybrid flexible flowshop. A hybrid flowshop mixes the characteristics of regular flowshops and parallel machine problems by considering stages with parallel machines instead of having one single machine per stage. We also investigate the flexible version where stage skipping might(More)

Although production and transportation scheduling problems are of two essential issues in supply chain management, they are rarely integrated. In this paper, we study the problem of production and transportation scheduling to minimize total cost of supply chain. The problem is mathematically modeled. Moreover, a novel metaheuristic based on an imperialist(More)
