Types of scheduling problems Project scheduling - Chapter 4 Job shop - Chapter 5 (shifting bottle neck) Flow shop - Chapter 5 Flexible assembly - Chapter 6 (profile fitting and flexible flow line loading FFLL) – Unpaced and paced – With and without bypass Lot sizing and scheduling - Chapter 7 (frequency fixing and sequencing FFS) 1

Lot Sizing and Scheduling A set of identical jobs may be very large in size Set up times and set up costs are very high Definition: run – uninterrupted processing of a series of identical items If a run is long the inevitably there will be inventory holding costs – Also known as continuous manufacturing Obj func. is to minimize the total cost, which includes the inventory holding costs and the setup costs – Optimal schedule is often a tradeoff between the above two costs. It is required to determine the run length – lot sizes by a trade-off between inventory holding costs and the setup costs and the order of the runs – minimize setup times and set-up costs The above problem is called ELSP – economic lot scheduling problem Solved using FFH heuristic- frequency fixing and sequencing heuristic 2

Lot Sizing and Scheduling n different jobs, each job has several (usually large # of units) p j – processing time of job j q j is the rate of production per unit time = 1/p j g j is the constant demand per unit time h j is the holding cost per unit time for job j If job j is followed by job k then set up cost is c jk and set up time is s jk x is the cycle length (time) (production time + idle time if setup time idle time) Also the sequence of the cycle has to be determined 3

Lot Sizing and Scheduling Applications – Chemical, paper, pharmaceutical, aluminum and steel industries where set up and inventory costs are high – Walmart type stores where ordering and inventory costs are high. 4

Lot Sizing and Scheduling 1 job and 1 machine Determine EOQ – economic order quantity (lot size) - gx – Also expressed in terms of the length of the production run (cycle time) - x Tradeoff between inventory holding and set-up time costs Assume q>g machine capacity/unit time > demand/unit time Cycle time = gx/q = quantity produced in a cycle/production rate per unit time The inventory level in a cycle (run) increases at q-g per unit time, so max inventory builds till (q-g)gx/q in a run (cycle) Then production stops and inventory depletes at g/unit time until it reaches zero and the next cycle starts. Average inventory level in a cycle is ½ (q-g)gx/q 5

Rotation schedules 1 machine but n jobs – With and without set-up time but with set up costs Sequence dependent and sequence independent set up time – Sequence dependent s jk – Sequence independent s jk = s k The cycle times of the n jobs must be identical. Hence, it is called rotation schedule – A cycle cannot have a job repeating itself within the cycle Determine the cycle time x and lot sizes g j x Case 1 : no set up time Case 2 : Sequence independent set up time but setuptime <=idle time - no sequencing Case 3 : Sequence independent set up time but setuptime >idle time - no sequencing Case 4 : Sequence dependent set up time which is the same as a TSP problem (setuptime <=idle time) Minimize the sum of set up times to obtain a sequence Also has lot sizing as a separate problem Case 5: Sequence dependent set up time which is the same as a TSP problem (setuptime >idle time) Minimize the sum of set up times to obtain a sequence Also has lot sizing as a separate problem 8
