ABSTRACT
Rotor machining is a traditional discrete manufacturing process, among which large amount of non-essential energy is being wasted. The machining process belongs to pipeline production, so a flow-shop scheduling model is built to optimize it. But when there are over three machines, this will be an NP-hard problem. We introduce an improved ant-colony algorithm to find the best solution and then use the real machining data to test it. The total energy consumption is reduced by over 10% and this shows the model and intelligent algorithm work well.
