In the sequel, we consider the fuzzy job-shop problem, which is a variation of the job-shop problem where duration of tasks may be uncertain and where due-date constraints are allowed to be flexible. Uncertain durations are modeled using triangular fuzzy numbers, and due-date constraints are fuzzy sets with decreasing membership functions expressing a flexible threshold ldquoless than.rdquo Also, the objective function is built using fuzzy decision-making theory. We propose the use of a genetic… CONTINUE READING
