Solving Machine Loading Problem in Flexible Manufacturing Systems Using Particle Swarm Optimization

Abstract

In this paper, a particle swarm optimization (PSO) algorithm is proposed to solve machine loading problem in flexible manufacturing system (FMS), with bicriterion objectives of minimizing system unbalance and maximizing system throughput in the occurrence of technological constraints such as available machining time and tool slots. A mathematical model is… (More)
