In the context of manufacturing systems, scheduling refers to allocation of resources over time to perform a set of operations. Manufacturing systems scheduling has many applications ranging from manufacturing, computer processing, transportation, communication, health care, space exploration, education, distribution networks, etc. Scheduling is a process(More)
Scheduling involves the allocation of resources over a period of time to perform a collection of tasks (Baker, 1974). It is a decision-making process that plays an important role in most manufacturing and service industries (Pinedo, 2005). Scheduling in the context of manufacturing systems refers to the determination of the sequence in which jobs are to be(More)
This paper deals with the operational issues of a two-echelon single vendor–multiple buyers supply chain (TSVMBSC) model under vendor managed inventory (VMI) mode of operation. The operational parameters to the above model are: sales quantity and sales price that determine the channel profit of the supply chain, and contract price between the vendor and the(More)
Robots are employed in assembly lines to increase the productivity. The objective of robotic assembly line balancing (rALB) problem is to balance the assembly line, by allocating equal amount of tasks to the workstations on the line while assigning the most efficient robot to perform the assembly task at the workstation. In this paper, bio-inspired search(More)
