This paper studies a new extension of distributed permutation flow shop scheduling problem (DPFSP) referred to as the DPFSP with flowline eligibility. Under this extension, the problem contains two stages. At the first assignment stage, a set N of n jobs is distributed among F factories with flowline eligibility constraint, i.e., not all the factories are available for every job. Then each factory can be regarded as a regular permutation flow shop scheduling problem (PFSP) in which jobs… CONTINUE READING
