Today’s apparel industry must respond to an ever-changing fashion market. Just-in-time production is a must-go direction. The apparel industry generates more production orders, which are split into smaller jobs to provide customers with timely and customized fashion products. Production planning is even more challenging if the due times of production orders are fuzzy and resource competing. In this chapter, genetic algorithms and fuzzy set theory generate just-in-time fabric-cutting schedules in a dynamic and fuzzy environment. ...
