This paper presents a method of job allocation and scheduling that determines optimal job allocation and the shortest paths for robots having collision regions. The problem described in this paper is an application of a classical flexible jobshop scheduling problem with shared resources. A genetic algorithm and a TABU search are used for the job allocation and scheduling procedures. Overlapping activities in a collision region can result in robot collisions. This should be a hard constraint in… CONTINUE READING
