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−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)
