Abstract

Scheduling optimization normally aimed at minimizing makespan, leading to overall optimization of the production cost. This study focuses on determining the production sequence with minimum makespan for scheduling of a flowshop process using no intermediate storage (NIS) transfer policy. Unlike previous methods which uses mathematics considerably and lacks interactivity, the method introduces a simple approach based on matrix formulation to determine the makespan for all possible batch production sequences thus allowing simple screening to be done for selecting the optimal sequence. © 2008 Asian Network for Scientific Information.
