Abstract

A method is presented for real-time scheduling and routing of material in a flexible manufacting system (FMS). It extends the earlier scheduling work of J. Kimemia and S. B. Gershwin (1983). The FMS model includes machines that fail at random times and stay down for random lengths of time. The novel element is the capability of different machines to perform some of the same operations. The times that different machines require to peform the same operation may differ. This study includes a model, its analysis, a real-time algorithm, and examples.
