Genetic Algorithms and Flowshop Scheduling: Towards the Development of a Real-Time Process Control System


Scheduling in chemical flowshops is one of a number of important industrial problems which are potentially amenable to solution using the genetic algorithm. However the problem is not trivial: flowshops run continuously, and for efficient operation those controlling them must be able to adjust the order in which products are made as new requests are… (More)
