Minimizing the makespan for the flow shop scheduling problem with availability constraints

  title={Minimizing the makespan for the flow shop scheduling problem with availability constraints},
  author={Riad Aggoune},
  journal={European Journal of Operational Research},
This paper deals with the scheduling of a flow shop with availability constraints (FSPAC). In such a problem, machines are not continuously available for processing jobs due to a preventive maintenance activity. A small number of solution methods exists in the literature for solving problems with at most two machines and to the author s knowledge only a few of them make use of the non-preemptive constraint. In this paper, two variants of the nonpreemptive FSPAC are considered. In the first… CONTINUE READING
