Abstract: The production organized in flexible manufacturing cells (FMC) can be a complicated issue when they are constrained by machines, robots, equipment and some other resources. Since machines and robots are the main bottleneck to the efficiency of FMC, this paper focused on the modeling and scheduling problem constrained by machines and robots. A common model representation, colored timed Petri net (CTPN) was utilized to build a FMC model constrained by robots and machines, which was then transformed to the simula…
