Abstract—In the paper the influence of route flexibility degree, open rate of operations and production type coefficient on makespan is discussed. The flexible job-open shop scheduling problem FJOSP (an extension of the classical job shop scheduling) is analyzed. For the analysis of the production process the GRASP (greedy randomized adaptive search procedure) and simulated annealing heuristic algorithms were used. Experiments with different levels of factors have been considered and compared. The presented algorithms have been tested, and illustrated with examples for serial route.
Index Terms—Makespan, open shop, route flexibility, simulation modeling, type of production.
