Flexible And sustainable manufacturing

This project focus is on manufacturing flexibility and sustainability. The former is researched by optimizing scheduling operations in flexible manufacturing systems through the cumulative integration of the several sub-problems faced in manufacturing flexible systems. Sustainability is promoted via optimizing resource consumption and pollutant emissions along with the usual efficiency measures (makespan, tardiness, workload, etc.) for production operations scheduling problems. Regarding the emissions, it also accounts for the possibility of buying and/or selling pollution permits. Mathematical programming models are proposed, as well solutions methods to solve them. In addition, and due to the NP-hardness nature of the problems under consideration, solution approaches based on evolutionary algorithms that are capable of finding good solutions in a reasonable are also proposed.Project datasheet
