A Genetic Algorithm for Integration Planning of Assembly Operation and Machine Layout
This study is intended to examine the issue regarding the integration of assembly operations and machine layouts. For this issue, we consider a scenario of multiple orders and therefore build up an optimized mathematical model of synchronous planning. In the study, we develop an optimization mathematical model that uses a genetic algorithm (GA) for finding solutions and identify the most proper parameter value that best fit the GA by means of the experimental design. Ultimately, we use a case for a methodological application and the result shows that the GA may effectively integrate assembly operations and machine layouts for finding solutions.
