Abstract

This study describes the application of the developed model to the scheduling of the Robotic Flexible Assembly Cells (RFACs). The present study is a continuation of the paper titled “Development of a Fuzzy-Simulation Model of Scheduling Robotic Flexible Assembly Cells”. This new model for multi-objective scheduling problems in RFACs was based on combining a fuzzy-based mathematical model with simulation software tools. In this study, a hypothetical case study of RFACs is presented to demonstrate the effectiveness of the developed model and then compare the results that are obtained by the new methodology with the common scheduling rules. The simulation results show that the performance of the proposed methodology outperforms the most popular scheduling rules from previous research.
