Evolutionary Design of Time-Way Charts for Plating Machines

By Georges Matile Sts, Georges E. Matile, Andrea G. B. Tettamanzi and Marco Tomassini


Scheduling the production for plating machines is a tedious and difficult task of critical importance for the economic exploitation of this equipment. This paper describes a promising approach to solving a simple version of this problem, namely cyclical hoist scheduling, based on evolutionary algorithms. The issues of solution encoding and specialised genetic operators are discussed and some preliminary results are presented
