Book Description

Both process planning and scheduling are very important functions of manufacturing, which affect 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.


  • Covers the basics of both process planning and scheduling
  • Presents nonlinear approaches, closed-loop approaches, as well as distributed approaches
  • Discuss the outfit of IPPS in Industry 4.0 paradigm
  • Includes the benchmarking problems on IPPS
  • Contains nature-algorithms and metaheuristics for performance measurements in IPPS
  • Presents analysis of energy-efficient objective for sustainable manufacturing in IPPS
