Sequencing and scheduling for non serial permutation flowshops

Burdett, Robert L. & Kozan, Erhan (2002) Sequencing and scheduling for non serial permutation flowshops. In Kozan, Erhan & Ohuchi, Azuma (Eds.) Operations Research/Management Science at Work: Applying Theory in the Asia Pacific Region. Kluwer Academic Publishers.


Most flowshop problems that have been researched have dealt with serial precedence requirements such that the flowshop has become synonymous with the serial assembly line. However, non-serial precedence requirements can also occur for which the resulting problem is still a type of flowshop. This research addresses in particular, non-serial versions of the three standard flowshop problems, namely the intermediate storage, no-intermediate storage and no-wait flowshop scenarios. The outcomes of this research include a number of new and alternative mathematical formulations for finding the optimal sequence of the products to be processed through the non-serial line. Secondly recurrence equations for scheduling purposes have also been developed.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
