Application of EM algorithm to hybrid flow shop scheduling problems with a special blocking


In this paper, we consider hybrid flow shop (HFS) scheduling problem with a special blocking constraint. Objective function is makespan minimization. HFS and RCb blocking constraint are firstly presented. Then, an integer linear model is presented to find the optimal solution and a lower bound is proposed for high size problems. In order to faster obtain a… (More)
