The Effectiveness of Three Heuristic Rules for Job Sequencing in a Single Production Facility

By R. D. Haynes, C. A. Komar and Jr. Jack Byrd


This paper examines the effectiveness of three heuristic rules used in production sequencing where the objective is to minimize the downtime due to setup changes. The effectiveness of these heuristic rules was evaluated under various conditions of job size and setup time distribution. The results of this analysis indicate that job conditions do affect the effectiveness of these three rules.
