ABSTRACT :

Many manufacturing industries are specialized in various operations in making varieties of components. It has various batches for production of different component based on the size, material and shape. This paper proposes a framework model for integration of manufacturing resource planning with job shop scheduling. To achieve truly computer integrated manufacturing systems, the integration of employee time tabling and job shop scheduling is essential. Generally Manufacturing resource planning and job shop scheduling are to be considered as too hard and complex production areas. This integrated system consists of two modules. First module provides all the required details of different rolls in integration of manufacturing resource planning and Job shop scheduling to tackle the variability in job durations and machines. Then the second model provides a feasible production schedule for job-shop scheduling problem. Heuristics algorithm is used to find an optimum schedule with minimizing the resource cost as well as refine the makespan results. In the job shop scheduling problem n jobs have to be processed on m different machines. Each job consists of a several sequence of tasks that have to be processed during an uninterrupted time period of a fixed length on a given machine. This integrated system is menu driven and very user friendly. This system is designed for companies with multiple warehouse locations who need quick and easy access to important production information such as available stock levels for production and sales. This system is also designed to make the production process more efficient, improve the customer service and satisfactions. Generally the entire system will be used to find the test service reports quickly. It allows a large amount of data to be securely backed up with makespan and cost effective to make the process easily. The application aims to realize an integrated system that has rapid response to changing customer requirements and capability to integrate heterogeneous manufacturing facilities. This proposed system developed in scholastic search way to bring optimized results in stipulated time with respect to optimum schedule and also tested in two different Manufacturing Industries using Visual Basic .NET as the front end and MYSQL as the back end tool. The system been tested with various sets of input data and has been found working properly.
