Process Plan Selection Problem.
Proceedings - 1986 IEEE International Conference on Robotics and Automation.

Most of the planning models for flexible manufacturing systems are based on the assumption that for each part there is only one process plan available. A more realistic standpoint is taken that for each part a number of different process plans could be used, each of which requires specific types of tools and fixtures. A model for the selection of a set of process plans with the minimum corresponding manufacturing cost and minimal number of tools and fixtures is formulated. Heuristic algorithms and numerical results are discussed.
