In this paper a typical situation arising in the assembly of printed circuit boards is investigated. The planning problem we face is how to assemble boards of di erent types using a single line of placement machines. From a practical viewpoint, the multiplicity of board types adds signi cantly to the complexity of the problem, which is already very hard to solve in the case of a single board type. In addition, relatively few studies deal with the multiple board type case. We propose a solution… CONTINUE READING
