We address the short-term production planning and scheduling problem coming from the glass container industry. A furnace melts the glass that is distributed to a set of parallel molding machines. Both furnace and machine idleness are not allowed. The resulting multi-machine multi-item continuous setup lotsizing problem with a common resource has sequence-dependent setup times and costs. Production losses are penalized in the objective function since we deal with a capital intensive industry. We… CONTINUE READING
