Bus Manufacturing Workshop Scheduling Method with Routing Buffer

by   Zhonghua Han, et al.

Aiming at solving the problem that the moving route is complicated and the scheduling is difficult in the routing buffer of the bus in the manufacturing workshop, a routing buffer mathematical programming model for bus manufacturing workshop is proposed. We design a moving approach for minimizing the total setup cost for moving in routing buffer. The framework and the solution ofthe optimization problem of such a bus manufacturing workshop scheduling with routing buffer arepresented. The evaluation results show that, comparing with the irregularly guided moving method, the proposed method can better guide the bus movement in routing buffer by reducing the total setup time of all buses processed at the next stage, and obtaining a better scheduling optimization solution with minimize maximum total completion time.
