Modelling a Complex Production Scheduling Problem: Optimization Techniques
Independent thesis Advanced level (degree of Master (One Year))Student thesis
In this thesis, and complex real world problem, a sequence dependent scheduling of different product orders on a number of lines is addressed. Changeover costs occur between product orders belonging to different product groups. The operational research cycle is employed exploring different optimization techniques as mathematical modelling and heuristic approaches. The identification, implementation and demonstration of the techniques are supported with numerical results from experiments. One combination of different solution techniques is put forward. Some suggestions are done for reducing cost and increasing productivity.
