Abstract

A new mixed integer programming formulation is presented for cyclic scheduling in flow lines with parallel machines and finite in-process buffers, where a Minimal Part Set (MPS) in the same proportion as the overall production target is repetitively scheduled. The cycle of parts in an MPS is not determined a priori, but is obtained along with the optimal schedule for all parts. In addition to the cyclic scheduling, a cyclic-batch scheduling mode is introduced, where within the MPS the parts of one type are processed consecutively. Numerical examples are included and some results of computational experiments are reported.

Abstract

An enhancement of the Miller-Tucker-Zemlin (MTZ) model for the asymmetric traveling salesman problem is presented by introducing additional constraints to the initial formulation. The constraints account for ordering of boundary nodes as well as all successive nodes in the salesman tour. The enhanced MTZ subtour elimination constraints are computationally compared with the basic MTZ constraints and the version of MTZ lifted by Desrochers and Laporte. The proposed enhancement shows improved performance on a number of asymmetric TSPLIB instances.
