Scheduling Manufacturing Systems of Re-Entrant Lines Chapter uri icon


  • Re-entrant lines axe manufacturing systems where parts may return more than once to the same machine, for repeated stages of processing. Examples of such systems are semiconductor manufacturing plants. We consider the problems of scheduling such systems to reduce manufacturing lead times, variations in the manufacturing lead times, or holding costs.
