Description

Abstract: The Symposium on Real-Time Optimization in Automated Manufacturing Facilities was held at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, Maryland, January 21-22, 1986. It was jointly sponsored by the Center for Manufacturing Engineering (with funds obtained from the Navy Manufacturing Technology Program) and the Center for Applied Mathematics. It was designed to bring together those who design and test optimization procedures for solving planning, scheduling, and routing problems with those who must use these procedures in a real-time manufacturing environment. Included in the proceedings are discussions of the following topics: an approach to hierarchical production planning and scheduling; a hierarchy ... continued below

Description

Abstract: The Symposium on Real-Time Optimization in Automated Manufacturing Facilities was held at the National Bureau of Standards, Gaithersburg, Maryland, January 21-22, 1986. It was jointly sponsored by the Center for Manufacturing Engineering (with funds obtained from the Navy Manufacturing Technology Program) and the Center for Applied Mathematics. It was designed to bring together those who design and test optimization procedures for solving planning, scheduling, and routing problems with those who must use these procedures in a real-time manufacturing environment. Included in the proceedings are discussions of the following topics: an approach to hierarchical production planning and scheduling; a hierarchy of intelligent scheduling and control for automated manufacturing systems; the integration of planning scheduling, and control for automated manufacturing; intelligent manufacturing planning systems; a decision making framework for manufacturing systems; PATRIARCH -- hierarchical production scheduling; low-level interactive scheduling; the general employee scheduling problem: an effective large scale solution approach; ISIS project in review; dynamic control in automated manufacturing: a knowledge integrated approach; a management control approach to the manufacturing, planning, and scheduling problem; hierarchies of sub-periods in constraint-directed scheduling; a two-level planning and scheduling approach for computer integrated manufacturing; match-up real-time scheduling; a maximal covering model for loading flexible manufacturing systems; interstage transportation planning in the flow-shop environment; minimal technology routing and scheduling systems based on space filling curves; a multi-pass expert control system (MPECS) for flexible manufacturing systems; requirements for automatic control of aerospace manufacturing processes; real-time scheduling of an automated manufacturing center; the interaction between design and scheduling in repetitive manufacturing environments; an adaptable scheduling algorithm for flexible flow lines (abstract); determining aggregated FMS production ratios and minimum inventory requirements; a knowledge based system for dynamic manufacturing replanning; dispatching -- the critical automation lirk; scheduling jobs in flexible manufacturing systems; design requirements for a real-time production scheduling decision aid; an optimized Kanban system for a custom door manufacturer; a linear programming approach to numerically controlled face milling; and, system buffers required when FMS are used in fabrication and assembly operations.
