Study on Models of Planning and Scheduling in IT Manufacturing Processes
Traditionally, Models of IT manufacturing process planning and scheduling were carried out in a sequential way, where scheduling was done after process plans had been delivered. Since the two functions are usually complementary, it is necessary to integrate them correctly so that performance of an IT manufacturing system can be improved efficiently. In the thesis, a new integration model focused on key factors has been developed to facilitate the integration and optimization. The practice of the models show that the proposed approaches are promising and very effective methods for the integration of process planning and scheduling in IT manufacturing processes.
