Production Scheduling of Coating Workshop for Cutting Tools
The overall flow time of the coating workshop for cutting tools is set as the scheduling objective. The problems of production scheduling of coating workshop are described in detail, then the simulated modeling of the problems is constructed in the eM-Plant software, and the simulation model combines the genetic algorithms to solve the processing procedures. Compared with the simulated results at last, it is obvious that the production scheduling is greatly optimized and of excellent stability with genetic algorithms.
