A review of TSP based approaches for flowshop scheduling
TLDR
We show that the TSP based approach is quite effective over a broad range of flowshop scheduling problems, including no-wait, blocking, and robotic flowshops. Expand

Lot streaming and scheduling heuristics for m -machine no-wait flowshops
Abstract The objective of this paper is to minimize makespan in m -machine no-wait flowshops with multiple products requiring lot streaming. A ‘product’ here implies many identical items. ‘LotExpand

Effect of different multipliers and their interactions during manual lifting operations
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) developed a lifting equation in 1981 to indicate ‘‘safe’’ occupational lifting limits. This equation was revised in 1991. TheExpand
