Abstract

No-wait flowshop scheduling problem (NW-FSSP) with the objective to minimize the makespan is an important sequencing problem in the production plans and applications of no-wait flowshops can be found in several industries. In a NW-FSSP, jobs are not allowed to wait between two successive machines. The NW-FSSPs are addressed to minimize makespan and the NW-FSSP is known as a NP- Hard problem. In this study, Agarwal et al.’s1 adaptive learning approach (ALA) is improvement for NW-FSSPs. Improvements in adaptive learning approach is similar to neural-network training. The improvement adaptive learning approach (IALA) is applied to all of the 192 problems. The proposed IALA method for NW-FSSP is compared with Aldowaisan and Allahverdi’s2 results by using Genetic heuristic. The results of computational experiments on randomly generated NW-FSSPs are show that the proposed adaptive learning approach performs quite well.
