—We consider an optimal control problem for the hybrid model of a deterministic flow shop system, in which the jobs are processed in the order they arrive at the system. The problem is decomposed into a higher-level discrete-event system control problem of determining the optimal service times, and a set of lower-level classical control problems of… (More)

—We consider an optimization problem for deterministic flow shop systems of traditional machines with service costs penalizing small service times. A regular completion-time cost is also included so as to complete jobs as early as possible. The service times are assumed to be initially controllable, i.e., they are set at the startup time. Assuming convexity… (More)

—We consider deterministic mixed-line flow shop systems that are composed of controllable and uncontrollable machines. Arrival times and completion deadlines of jobs are assumed to be known, and they are processed in the order they arrive at the machines. We model these flow shops as serial networks of queues operating under a non-preemptive… (More)

We consider a convex and nondifferentiable optimization problem for deterministic flow shop systems in which the arrival times of the jobs are known and jobs are processed in the order they arrive. The decision variables are the service times that are to be set only once before processing the first job, and cannot be altered between processes. The cost… (More)
