In this paper, we present a MIP-based heuristic and an effective genetic algorithm for the Robotic Cell Problem with Controllable Processing Times (RCPCPT). This problem arises in modern automated manufacturing systems and requires simultaneously scheduling jobs, machines, and transportation devices in order to maximize the throughput or minimize the… CONTINUE READING
