Abstract :

This paper examines the importance of simultaneous scheduling of machines and two identical automated guided vehicles (AGVs) in a flexible manufacturing system (FMS).Optimum AGVs operation plays a crucial role in improving the performance of FMS. A hybrid meta heuristic algorithm is proposed and developed the code in JAVA to provide optimum Sequence with relative makespan value and AGVs schedule for ten job sets and four lay outs. The code will enhance the productivity, minimize the delivery cost and optimally utilize the entire fleet simultaneous scheduling of machines and AGVs adopting minimization of relative makespan function, provide better performance when compared with other algorithms.
