A Note on "Level Schedules for Mixed-Model Assembly Lines in Just-in-Time Production Systems"

By Wieslaw Kubiak and Suresh Sethi


This note formulates an assignment problem for obtaining optimal level schedules for mixed-model assembly lines in JIT production systems. The problem was formulated as a quadratic integer programming problem in a recent paper by Miltenburg (1989) where, however, only enumerative algorithms and heuristics were proposed for its solution. Our assignment formulation can also be extended to more general objective functions than the one used by Miltenburg.production/scheduling: mixed-model assembly lines, just-in-time, programming: nonlinear integer, assignment problem
