In this chapter, a production control problem on a flexible assembly line (FAL) with flexible operation assignment and variable operative efficiencies is described. A mathematical model of the production control problem is formulated by considering the time-constant learning curve to deal with the change of operative efficiency in real-life production. An intelligent production control decision support (PCDS) system is developed, composed of a radio frequency identification (RFID) technology-based ...
