A. Jafari; P. Chiniforooshan; F. Mousavinejad; Sh. Shahparvari

Volume 1, Issue 3 , Autumn 2012, Pages 1-25

Abstract
  In this paper, we consider the fuzzy open shop scheduling problem with parallel machines in each working stage where processing times are vague and are represented by fuzzy numbers. An open shop scheduling problem with parallel machines in each working stage under this condition is close to the real ...  Read More
