Simulation Modeling of Dynamic and Flexible Scheduling about Large-Sized Components Producing Workshop Based on Cellular Automata
A simulation model of dynamic & flexible scheduling about the large-sized components producing workshop was built by using the cellular automata according to both sides’ characteristics. The scheduling system can be divided into 4 parts: work station, buffer, work piece, and scheduling rules. Work station and buffer were viewed as fixed grid nodes, work piece as moving particles, scheduling rules as the local self-evolution rules which include station choosing rule, work piece sequencing rule and task activating rule. Model simulate the job scheduling of a certain generator components producing factory workshop.
