Flowshop Sequencing Problem with Ordered Processing Time Matrices

By M. L. Smith, S. S. Panwalkar and R. A. Dudek


A flowshop sequencing problem having an ordered processing time matrix is defined. Job and machine characteristics resulting in processing time relationships that have logical and practical bases are discussed. An optimizing solution procedure for a special class of ordered matrix problem is presented along with proof of optimality.
