In this paper we study a multi-product lot streaming problem in a stochastic job shop with equal and discrete sublots. The problem involves splitting order quantities of different products into different number of equal sublots (NES) and analyzing the effects of sublot-related transportation queue disciplines (TRQD) for different performance measures. Our simulation results show that some combination of TRQD and NES alternatives are appropriate for some performance measures. We also propose a… CONTINUE READING
