This paper considers identical parallel machines scheduling problem with past-sequence-dependent setup times, deteriorating jobs and learning effects, in which the actual processing time of a job on each machine is given as a function of the processing times of the jobs already processed and its scheduled position on the corresponding machine. In addition, the setup time of a job on each machine is proportional to the actual processing time of the already processed jobs on the corresponding machine, i.e., the setup time of a job is past- sequence-dependent (p-s-d). The objective is to determine jointly the jobs assigned to each machine and the order of jobs such that the total completion time (called TC) is minimized. Since that the problem is NP-hard, optimal solution for the instances of realistic size cannot be obtained within a reasonable amount of computational time using exact solution approaches. Hence, an efficient method based on ant colony optimization algorithm (ACO) is proposed to solve the given problem. The performance of the presented model and the proposed algorithm is verified by a number of numerical experiments. The related results show that ant colony optimization algorithm is effective and viable approache to generate optimal⁄near optimal solutions within a reasonable amount of computational time.

This research deals with a hybrid flow shop scheduling problem with parallel batching, machine eligibility, unrelated parallel machine, and different release dates to minimize the sum of the total weighted earliness and tardiness (ET) penalties. In parallel batching situation, it is supposed that number of machine in some stages are able to perform a certain number of jobs simultaneously. Firstly, with respect to the proposed problem a mixed integer linear programming model is developed. Since the problem is NP-hard, for solving large size problems, a hybrid meta-heuristic algorithm which combines artificial immune system and simulated annealing is proposed. The performance of hybrid algorithm is tested by some numerical experiments and the results show its superiority to the other two algorithms.

Sustainable supply chain networks have attracted considerable attention in recent years as a means of dealing with a broad range of environmental and social issues. This paper reports a multi-objective mixed-integer linear programming (MILP) model for use in the design of a sustainable closed loop supply chain network under uncertain conditions. The proposed model aims to minimize total cost, optimize environmental impacts of establishment of facilities, processing and transportation between each level as well as social impacts including customer satisfaction. Due to changes in business environment the uncertainty existed in the research problem, in this paper the chance constrained fuzzy programming approach applied to cope with uncertainties in parameter of the proposed model. Then the proposed multi-objective model solves as single-objective model using LP-metric method.
