In this paper, a max-plus-linear model predictive control strategy is proposed for High-Variety, Low-Volume (HVLV) systems. Firstly, using the (max,+) algebra, a direct generation ofâ€¦ (More)

. The High-Variety, Low-Volume (HVLV) scheduling problem is one of the most arduous and combinatorial optimization problems. This paper presents an analytical scheduling model using a tropicalâ€¦ (More)

High-Variety, Low-Volume (HVLV) manufacturing systems are built to produce parts of several types in small quantities and under multiple production objectives. They relate to job-shop systems wellâ€¦ (More)

Most production scheduling problems, including High-Variety, Low-Volume (HVLV) scheduling problems assume that machines are continuously available. However, in most actual situations, machines becomeâ€¦ (More)

In this paper, a genetic algorithm (GA) method for the design of the operational architecture of a control system is presented. It provides from the knowledge of some characteristics of the functionsâ€¦ (More)

The High-Variety, Low-Volume (HVLV) scheduling problem is one of the most arduous combinatorial optimization problems. This paper considers an interesting formulation of the HVLV scheduling problemâ€¦ (More)
