This paper presented a new mixed integer linear programming(MILP) mathematical model for the scheduling of single stage multiproduct batch plant with parallel lines based on the notation of time slot and continuous time representation. The allocation of products and units to time slots is handled through two sets of binary variables respectively, and one time coordinate is used. This model involves less binary variables than any other model based on the notation of time slot, and can… CONTINUE READING
