This paper focuses on a Flexible Flow Shop (FFS) problem in a paint company in an attempt to minimize production makespan. The FFS problem is characterized by multiple products being produced in machines in stages with sequence dependent set up times and infinite intermediate storages. As the FFS problem is computationally complex, two heuristic methods are(More)
