Ant Colony Optimization Used in Backward Production Scheduling-Single Stage Process

Main Article Content



Scheduling is the process of arranging, controlling and optimizing work and workloads in a production process or manufacturing process. Scheduling is used to allocate plant and machinery resources, plan human resources, plan production processes and purchase materials. It is an important tool for manufacturing and engineering, where it can have a major impact on the productivity of a process. In manufacturing, the purpose of scheduling is to minimize the production time and costs, by telling a production facility when to make, with which staff, and on which equipment. Production scheduling aims to maximize the efficiency of the operation and reduce costs. In some situations, scheduling can involve random attributes, such as random processing times, random due dates, random weights, and stochastic machine breakdowns. In this case, the scheduling problems are referred to as "stochastic scheduling." The goal of the scheduling framework is to distribute assignments (orders or "occupations") to assets and organize them as efficiently and financially as possible”. In various cases, a good solution that is quickly found is more likely to prefer. In situations like mentioned above, the use of metaheuristics is an appropriate strategy. In recent years, such tools have been used to build some off-the-shelf systems. Here we investigate the development of a task shop booking work that utilizes hidden Ant Colony Optimization in a regressive planning issue in an assembling situation with single-stage preparing, equal assets, and adaptable paths. This situation was found in an enormous grocery industry. This work shows the necessity of this computerized reasoning method. Truth be told, Ant Colony Optimization has ended up being as efficient as branch-and-bound, be that as it may, executing a lot quicker.
