The frequent changeovers in the production processes indicate the importance of setup time in many real-world manufacturing activities. The traditional approaches in dealing with setup times are that either to omit or to merge into the processing times so as to simplify the problems. These approaches could reduce the complexity of the problem, but often generated unrealistic outcomes because of the assumed conditions. This situation motivated us to consider sequence-dependent setup times in a… CONTINUE READING
