Single machine common flow allowance scheduling with a fuzzy rate-modifying activity


The fuzzy scheduling is a new approach presented in this paper. In classic scheduling, it was assumed that the machines are always available. So, no maintenance time was considered for calculations. Also, assumed that all given times are exact and there is no uncertainty, however in the real word accurate calculation is impossible and always faced with uncertainty. Therefore, scheduling calculations would not be accurate and an optimal solution would not be reached. In this study, rate-modifying activity time considered as the fuzzy number and the optimal solution was calculated in uncertainty condition. A novel type of fuzzy scheduling model is presented. A ROG algorithm for ranking fuzzy numbers was introduced and example was solved to show the effectiveness of the proposed approach.
