Flexible flow shop (FFS) has multiple machines in each stage, and usually not all the machines of a stage, but a subset of them can be assigned to a job because of various constraints. Recent studies have considered the inner-stage constraints, and this paper addresses the inter-stage constraints between two successive working centers. Traditional genetic… CONTINUE READING
