This is a single stage manufacturing process modeled as a

  • PHYSICAL STATE of parts -> Time-driven Dynamics
  • TEMPORAL STATE of parts -> Event-driven Dynamics

OBJECTIVE: Select control for each part to achieve HIGH QUALITY and TIMELY DELIVERY

Please input system parameters as shown below:

  • N = Number of jobs
  • a = Weight on departure times
  • b = Weight on controls
  • r = Weight on waiting times
  • Arrival sequence (part schedule)
  • Control sequence [optional – optimal controls obtained by default]
  • q: Desired quality level (common to all parts or individually set)

Program solves optimal control problem and draws state trajectory

You may compare your choice of control to optimal control
