In this paper, we consider a problem of balancing transfer lines with multi-spindle machines. The problem has a number of distinct features in comparison with the well-studied Assembly Line Balancing Problem, such as parameterized operation times, non-strict precedence constraints, and parallel operations execution. We propose MIP-based greedy randomized(More)
We study an optimal design problem for serial machining lines. Such lines consist of a sequence of stations. At every station, the operations to manufacture a product are grouped into blocks. The operations within each block are performed simultaneously by the same spindle head and the blocks of the same station are executed sequentially. The inclusion and(More)
A balancing problem for serial machining lines with multi-spindle heads is studied. The objective is to assign a set of given machining operations to a number of machines while minimizing the line cost and respecting a number of given technological and economical constraints. To solve this problem, three different genetic algorithms are suggested and(More)
