For flexible manufacturing cells (FMCs), the major control problem is to determine the optimal part routeing and machines dispatching policy. In this research, we present a methodology for generating optimal operating strategies for FMCs. The methodology is built on two techniques: stochastic timed Petri net (STPN) and Markov decision process (MDP). The operating strategy devised with the proposed methodology is deadlock-free and provides the best performance given a set of system parameters… CONTINUE READING
