Optimization of flexible process planning by genetic programming

  title={Optimization of flexible process planning by genetic programming},
  author={X. Y. Li and X. Y. Shao and Liang Gao},
The traditional manufacturing system research literature generally assumed that there was only one feasible process plan for each job. This implied that there was no flexibility considered in the process plan. But, in the modern manufacturing system, most jobs may have a large number of flexible process plans. So, flexible process plans selection in a manufacturing environment has become a crucial problem. In this paper, a new method using an evolutionary algorithm, called genetic programming… CONTINUE READING
