|Abstract:||<p>Lot streaming is the process of splitting a job or lot to allow overlapping between successive operations in a multistage production system. This use of transfer lots usually results in a shorter makespan for the corresponding schedule. In this paper, we present two quickly obtainable approximations of very good quality for the discrete lot streaming problem in flow shops.</p>|
