Job-Shop Scheduling in a Body Shop

We study a generalized job-shop problem called the body shop scheduling problem (bssp). This problem arises from the industrial application of welding in a car body production line, where possible collisions between industrial robots have to be taken into account. bssp corresponds to a job-shop problem where the operations of a job have to follow … Read more

A hybrid genetic algorithm for the job shop scheduling problem

This paper presents a hybrid genetic algorithm for the Job Shop Scheduling problem. The chromosome representation of the problem is based on random keys. The schedules are constructed using a priority rule in which the priorities are defined by the genetic algorithm. Schedules are constructed using a procedure that generates parameterized active schedules. After a … Read more
