This paper introduces some advanced genetic algorithms for a complex hybrid flexible flow line problem with a makespan objective that was recently formulated. General precedence constraints among jobs are taken into account, as are machine release dates, time lags and sequence dependent set-up times; both anticipatory and non-anticipatory. This combination of constraints captures many real world industrial problems; among those is the ceramic tile production that served as our inspiration. The… CONTINUE READING
