I have a production of batch process. The work order come with the number of demand, with start time and due date and its processing time.
There are several machines and each machines contain 10 slots for the jobs. The capacity of the slots depend on the type of product.
There are limited number of stainless to use with the machine and it specify by work order. After using the stainless, it will be clean for some fixed time.
The question is how can I model this batch process that I could assign the work order into slot and all of this slot in the machine must be process with the same time and same processing time. The demand can be 1000 units and the capacity of the slot is around 10 units each time.
As far as I look through all examples with IBM, there is a job and it will be processed once by the machine and the time require would be enough for that job. Any help would be greatly appreciate.
Thank you very much,
