Improved algorithms for machine allocation in manufacturing systems
In this paper we present two algorithms for a machine allocation problem occurring in manufacturing systems. For the two algorithms presented we prove worst-case performance ratios of 2 and 312, respectively. The machlne allocat~on problem we consider is a general convex resource allocation problem, which makes the algorithms applicable to a varlety of resource allocation problems. Numerical results are presented for two real-life manufacturing systems.
