BibTeX reference

This paper describes strip sequencing models for large scale traveling salesman problems arising in flexible manufacturing operations in two or three discrete dimensions, under a Manhattan metric. Asymptotically optimal values are derived for the strip width that minimizes unit expected manufacturing time.
