Optimal Sequencing Rules for Some Large Scale Flexible Manufacturing Problems Under Four Different Metrics

, et

The purpose of this paper is to develop optimal tool partitioning policies and strip sequencing strategies for a class of flexible manufacturing problems such as hole drilling. Analytical solutions are derived under four metrics corresponding to different operating modes. A detailed numerical example is provided.
