SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT – ENTERPRISE SYSTEM INTEGRATION AND SUPPLY CHAIN RESOURCE PLANNING

Flexible flowshop scheduling problem is a kind of problemthat has serial stages, which at least one of them has parallel machines andthat jobs follow the same route. It can be considered as flowshop schedulingproblem with parallel machines or parallel machine scheduling problem withmulti stages. There is not a recent literature review, though there are reviewsmade in the past. In this study 132 papers on flexible flowshop schedulingproblem were sequenced according to publication date, process complexity,scheduling criteria and method(s) used for solution and classified as 2, 3 andmulti stages.
