We consider the problem of scheduling operations in a robotic cell processing a single part type. Each machine in the cell has a one-unit input buffer and a one-unit output buffer. The machines and buffers are served by one single gripper robot. The domain considered is free-pickup cells with additive intermachine travel time. The processing constraints(More)
We consider the scheduling problem of cyclic production in a bufferless dual-gripper robot cell processing a family of identical parts. The objective is to find an optimal sequence of robot moves so as to maximize the long-run average throughput rate of the cell. While there has been a considerable amount of research dealing with single-gripper robot cells,(More)
A robotic cell is a manufacturing system that is widely used in industry. Our research concerns scheduling of multiple products in a robotic cell served by a dual-gripper robot. The cell contains two robot-served machines repetitively producing a set of multiple parts in a steady state. The processing constraints specify the cell to be a flow shop. The(More)
A robotic cell−a manufacturing system widely used in industry−contains two or more robot-served machines, repetitively producing a number of part types. In this paper, we consider scheduling of operations in a bufferless dual gripper robotic cell processing multiple part types. The processing constraints specify the cell to be a flowshop. The objective is(More)
