This paper is concerned about the sequencing problems in pull production systems which are composed of one mixed-model assembly line and one flexible fabrication flow line with limited intermediate buffers. Two objectives are considered simultaneously: minimizing the total variation in parts consumption in the assembly line and minimizing the makespan in(More)
This paper is concerned about how to optimize the input sequence for a mixed-model assembly line (MMAL) with limited intermediate buffers. Three optimization objectives are considered simultaneously: minimizing the total production rate variation, the total setup, and the total assembly cost. The mathematical model is presented by incorporating the three(More)
In automotive industry, Painted Body Storage (PBS) is generally employed as a buffering and re-sequencing site, which has the capabilities of leveling unmatched production capacity and balancing different optimization objects between paint shop and trim shop. Takt Time becomes shorter with the growth of automotive production, and product configurations(More)
