The Multiple Part Type Cyclic Flow Shop Robotic Cell Scheduling Problem: A Novel and Comprehensive Mixed Integer Linear Programming Approach

This paper considers the problem of cyclic ow shop robotic cell scheduling deploying several single and dual gripper robots. In this problem, dierent part types are successively processed on multiple machines with dierent pickup criteria including free pickup, pickup within time-windows and no-waiting times. The parts are transported between the machines by the robots. We … Read more
