Planning and scheduling of assembly lines is a complex problem which is often very hard to solve with classical scheduling approaches. A promising way of dealing with problems of this domain is simulation based scheduling. We introduce the architecture of a framework which is designed to aid in the creation of solutions for assembly line workforce(More)
General purpose simulators offer an easy way to create simulations for a large variety of scenarios, although they are prepackaged with some drawbacks. To achieve their usefulness for most cases they need additional overhead and custom made extensions for special behavior which comes at enormous runtime and development cost. Especially when working with(More)
Our paper deals with the scheduling of complex assembly lines with a focus on Job Shop Scheduling Problems that exhibit several assembly specific characteristics: many isolated project networks with precedence constraints and thousands of jobs, time bound requirements for jobs and projects, limited resources with individual scheduling and resource lock(More)
The focus areas of our research are simulation and optimization of complex assembly lines for heavy machinery (airplanes, turbines, industrial machines etc.). These production facilities have several specific characteristics: many isolated project networks with precedence constraints and thousands of multi-mode activities, time-bounds for activities and(More)
