dc.description.abstractThere are two alternatives for production organization in precast factories - namely, the comprehensive method and the specialized method. Production scheduling under the specialized alternative has been found to be a difficult optimization problem if heterogeneous elements are involved. A flow shop sequencing model that incorporates actual constraints encountered in practice is proposed for this difficult case of precast production scheduling. The model is solved using a genetic algorithm (GA). The traditional minimize makespan and the more practical minimize tardiness penalty objective functions are optimized separately, as well as simultaneously using a normalized weighted GA. Comparisons between the GA and classical heuristic rules show that the GA can obtain good schedules for the model, giving a family of solutions that are at least as good as those produced by the use of heuristic rules. © ASCE,.
