A Goal Programming Approach to Multi-Period Production Line Scheduling
This paper considers the problem of scheduling multiple products on several different production lines (i.e. the n-job, m-machine scheduling problem) when multiple objectives exist. Specifically a goal programming model is developed and demonstrated via a case example. The production setting modelled in this paper includes three separate production lines that merge into a single inspection facility. Prior to the description and demonstration of the goal programming model, a brief overview of the multi-product scheduling problem and the various solution approaches to the problem is presented.
