Integrated Lot-sizing and Scheduling for Just-In-Time Production of Complex Assemblies with Finite Set-ups

  title={Integrated Lot-sizing and Scheduling for Just-In-Time Production of Complex Assemblies with Finite Set-ups},
  author={Muhammad Faraz Anwar and Rakesh Nagi},
This paper addresses the integrated scheduling and lot-sizing problem in a manufacturing environment which produces complex assemblies. Given the due-dates of the end items, the objective is to minimize the cumulative lead time of the production schedule (total makespan) and reduce set-up and inventory holding costs. A JIT production strategy is adopted in which production is scheduled as late as possible (to minimize WIP costs), but without backlogging end items. The integrated scheduling and… CONTINUE READING
