Cyclic scheduling of parts and robot moves in m-machine robotic cells
(Elsevier Ltd., 2018-02-27)
We consider a flow shop type manufacturing cell consisting of m machines and a material handling robot producing multiple parts. The robot transfers the parts between the machines and loads/unloads the machines. We consider ...
Pure cycles in two-machine dual-gripper robotic cells
(Pergamon-Elsevier Science Ltd, 2017-12)
We consider a robotic cell served by a dual-gripper robot that consists of identical CNC machines placed linearly and a material handling robot loading/unloading the machines and transporting the parts between them. Identical ...
Scheduling in two-machine robotic cells with a self-buffered robot
(Taylor & Francis Inc, 2016-02-01)
This study considers a production cell consisting of two machines and a material handling robot. The robot has a buffer space that moves with it. Identical parts are to be produced repetitively in this flowshop environment. ...
