Iterative Optimization-based Simulation: A Decision Support Tool for Job Release

Job release is an essential scheduling function and a core part of every production planning and control system. Essentially, job release has to do with the time and the jobs to release on to the shop floor, in such way that, a balanced and restricted workload is achieved. In this paper, an Iterative Optimization-based Simulation (IOS) decision support tool is proposed for job release. This is in line with Industry 4.0 paradigm, allowing the autonomously selection of jobs based on the current shop floor situation. This decision support tool is implemented using SIMIO as a simulation manager, MATLAB as an optimization manager and MySQL as a database manager.
