Both process planning and scheduling are very important functions of manufacturing, which affects together the cost to manufacture a product and the time to deliver it. This book contains various approaches proposed by researchers, to integrate the process planning and scheduling functions of manufacturing under varying configurations of shops. It is useful for both beginners and advanced researchers to understand and formulate the Integration Process Planning and Scheduling (IPPS) problem effectively.
