Conference paper
Part of the Lecture Notes in Electrical Engineering book series (LNEE, volume 163)


In order to solve dynamic flexible job shop scheduling problem (DFJSP), a dynamic scheduling system is designed. The system combines intelligent algorithm with human-machine cooperation method to form a new dynamic scheduling scheme which can timely deal with random disturbance of the production processes. The experimental results illustrate that the system is very important for manufacturing enterprise to improve productivity and reduce cost.
