In this paper, a real-time segmentation rescheduling (RSR) approach using genetic algorithms to handle the production planning and scheduling problem in dynamic apparel manufacturing environment is proposed. Experiments based on the actual production data were conducted to validate the performance of the RSR approach. The experimental results indicated that the makespan and the influence caused by the change of schedule could be minimised.
