Purpose – To provide a new model to solve the assembly‐planning problem of a textile machine in a shopfloor which can help researchers and practitioners.Design/methodology/approach – The assembly planning of a textile machine (repetitive manufacturing system) involves the allocation of operations to cross‐trained operators. Workflow is defined as the workloads assigned to the operators. Operators with smaller workloads are selected to be assigned new operations from the list of unscheduled… CONTINUE READING
