Cyclic Scheduling in the Manufacturing Cell
The chapter is devoted to scheduling of jobs performed by machines and by an operator in the automated manufacturing cell, which produces parts in large production batches. The purpose of scheduling is to determine a cyclical schedule that minimizes production cycle time. The chapter presents the original model of the problem that enables effective determination of cycle time for any sequence of operations in the cell. What is more, there was an algorithm proposed that determines the sequence and schedule of works minimizing the production cycle time.
