A novel approach to solve Equal Size Lot Streaming (ESLS) in Job-shop Scheduling Problem (JSP) using Genetic Algorithms (GAs) is proposed. LS refers to a situation that a lot can be split into a number of smaller lots (or sub-lots) so that successive operation can be overlapped. By adopting the proposed approach, the sub-lot number for different lots and the processing sequence of all sub-lots can be determined simultaneously using GAs. Applying Just-In-Time (JIT) policy, the results show that the solution can minimize both the overall penalty cost and total setup time with the development of multi-objective function. In this connection, decision makers can then assign various weightings so as to enhance the reliability of the final solution.
