What is it about?

This paper deals with constrained multi-stage machines flow shop (FS) Scheduling model in which processing times, job weights, and break-down machine time are characterized by fuzzy numbers that are piecewise as well as quadratic in nature. Avoiding to convert the model into its crisp, the closed interval approximation for the piecewise quadratic fuzzy numbers is incorporated.

Why is it important?

The suggested method leads to an optimal sequence to the considered problem which is a non-crossing optimal sequence and minimizing the total elapsed time under fuzziness.


The proposed approach helps the decision maker to search for finding applicable solution related to real world problems and minimizes the total fuzzy elapsed time. A numerical example is provided for the illustration of the suggested methodology.
