In this work we consider a scheduling problem in an assembly area composed of several machines of various characteristics and used to resist welding different parts using specific tools.

The area is equipped with a monitoring interface installed on remote computer representing in real time the state of the machines, the progress data of the schedule are extracted from this application.

The problem consists in optimizing the efficiency of the zone by minimizing the time of the logistic shutdown (change of tools, overproduction processing time, disruptions due to stock shortages…)

The results will be illustrated through an application (case study) carried out on this area.
