Abstract:We conduct this research for Syze (a fictitious name used to ensure anonymity), the developer of an Enterprise Resource Planning (ERP) system, mainly focused on manufacturing companies. One of the components of the ERP-system is the finite production scheduler (FPS), which creates an operational schedule of the operations to be processed on different machines of Syze’s customers, by solving a Flexible Job Shop Problem (FJSP). Currently, only one scheduling method is implemented in the FPS, while many other methods exist in literature. Syze wants to improve the FPS in order to better serve their customers. In order for Syze to be able to decide with which scheduling methods they should extend the FPS, and to give their customers advice on what scheduling method to use for their case, this research aims to find out what methods perform best in solving different cases of an FJSP by selecting and applying methods to available cases.
