This paper presents a research project undertaken at Industrial Research Institute Swinburne (IRIS) in the area of fuzzy scheduling. The research commenced in March 2001 and the full project is expected to be completed in February 2004. The fuzzy based scheduling model, in this paper, will only deal with the part routing problem. The model will select the best alternative route with multi-criteria scheduling through an approach based on a fuzzy logic. This model is applicable to the scheduling of a flexible manufacturing cell (FMC) and also a multi-machine flexible manufacturing system (MMFMS).
