Integration of Process Planning and Scheduling innbundetEngelsk, 2019


Both process planning and scheduling are very important functions of manufacturing, which affect together the cost to manufacture a product and the time to deliver it. This book contains various approaches proposed by researchers to integrate the process planning and scheduling functions of manufacturing under varying configurations of shops. It is useful for both beginners and advanced researchers to understand and formulate the Integration Process Planning and Scheduling (IPPS) problem effectively.FeaturesCovers the basics of both process planning and schedulingPresents nonlinear approaches, closed-loop approaches, as well as distributed approachesDiscuss the outfit of IPPS in Industry 4.0 paradigm Includes the benchmarking problems on IPPSContains nature-algorithms and metaheuristics for performance measurements in IPPSPresents analysis of energy-efficient objective for sustainable manufacturing in IPPS
