The process planning and scheduling issues of intelligent and distributed manufacturing are now crucial due to the need for enterprises to be adaptive, re-configurable, collaborative and flexible enough to support the emergence of worldwide competition and dynamic and mass-customized markets. Thus, more effective and efficient decision-making techniques are needed. Unlike traditional methodologies, this is the first book to focus on emerging technologies for distributed intelligent decision-making in process planning and dynamic scheduling. It consists of two sections: a review of several key areas of research, and an in-depth treatment of particular techniques. Each chapter addresses a specific problem domain and offers practical solutions to solve it. Given the essential role manufacturing plays in the economic development of all industrial nations, this book will interest academic researchers, practising engineers and graduate students.Example.
