Abstract

Scheduling automated, unmanned manufacturing systems is significantly different from traditional job shops where human presence is implicitly assumed. Deadlocking has been identified as one of the critical problem in the control of automated manufacturing systems. In this paper, formulations for deadlock-free schedules are proposed and the importance of considering both material handling and buffer space availability while scheduling such an automated workstation are discussed.
