Abstract

The implementation of reconfigurable fixtures is a major facilitator of mass customisation. Traditional scheduling techniques do not consider reconfigurable fixtures comprehensively. This paper describes a multi-stage optimisation method that manages the recirculation of reconfigurable fixtures in a mass customisation production system. The method was based on an on-demand fixture manufacturing cell that served a part processing cell. The method consists of three stages: using established techniques such as k-means clustering and hierarchical clustering; and a novel mixed integer linear programming (MILP) model to optimise operation sequences. Minimisation of total idle time (and thus makespan) was used as the measure of performance.

Die implementering van herkonfigureerbare hegstukke is ’n belangrike fasiliteerder van massaproduksie aanpassing. Tradisionele skeduleringstegnieke oorweeg nie herkonfigureerbare hegstukke omvattend nie. Hierdie artikel beskryf ’n multi-fase optimiseringsmetode wat hersirkulering van herkonfigureerbare hegstukke in ’n massa aanpassing produksie stelsel bestuur. Die metode is gegrond op ’n op-bestelling vervaardigingsel wat gedien het as ‘n komponentprosesseringsel . Die metode bestaan uit drie fases: die gebruik maak van gevestigde tegnieke soos k-gemiddeld groepering en hiërargiese groepering; en ’n nuwe gemengde heelgetal lineêre programmering model om operasionele volgordes te optimiseer. Minimering van die totale niksdoentyd (en dus totale maaktyd) is gebruik as die maatstaf van vertoning.
