Mixed-Model Flow Production Scheduling Method Based on Multi-Agent and Hybrid Genetic Algorithm
To solve the dynamic and complex problem of production scheduling, depending on the introduction between multi-agent and hybrid genetic algorithm in mixed-model flow production scheduling, this paper proposed a mixed-model flow production scheduling method based on multi-agent and hybrid genetic algorithm. On the basis of this model, the mixed-model flow production scheduling procedure and strategy based on multi-agent and hybrid genetic algorithm were established. Finally, mixed-model flow production scheduling simulation system based on multi-agent and hybrid genetic algorithm was demonstrated and validated by QUEST software. It has shown the proposed method can improve the benefit of production scheduling, and provide a support for adapting to complex and dynamic production scheduling in mixed-model flow production.
