Optimizing Workflow in Cell-Based Slaughtering and Cutting of Pigs

Abstract : In this paper we describe and solve a scheduling problem taken from the slaughterhouse industry. In an on-going research project, a new concept for slaughtering and cutting of pigs is developed. The idea is to replace the traditional production line with a number of meat factory cells, where an operator slaughters and rough-cuts the pig, assisted by a robot. In order to minimize non-productive operator time, a solution approach is presented together with computational results.
