Abstract

Abstract This paper discusses the Algorithmic Grouping of Operation Sequences. This algorithm mainly groups the components which have approximately the same process sequences so that more than one component can be processed in the same line instead of aiming at a separate line for each component. This type of grouping is carried out heuristically, based on the criterion that the sum of material handling cost plus the machine idle time cost is minimised.
