Production management and scheduling problems in flexible manufacturing systems (FMSs) are complicated, compared with those problems in job shops and transfer lines. Due to the flexibility of FMSs, alternative operations are common. This paper presents a fuzzy approach to operation and routing selection via simulation. The rule developed here is compared with some other well-known conventional rules like WINQ (work in queue) and SNQ (shortest number of jobs in queue).
