Abstract

Production scheduling can be defined as the allocation of available production resources over time to best satisfy some set of criteria. Despite the advances in scheduling theory, many actual scheduling problems are still complex to yield analytic solution. This paper presents the constraints of analytic approaches aimed at optimal solution of FMS (Flexible Manufacturing System), explains reasons for creating intelligent scheduler, and announces one possible solution to the allocation problem. 1 Introduction Production planning and scheduling has been one of the most difficult and challenging tasks for industrial managers, engineers and technologists [1]. Despite the advances in scheduling theory, many actual scheduling problems are still to complex to yield analytic so
