KEY WORDS: Defuzzification, flow shop scheduling, fuzzy ranking, LR-type fuzzy number.



ABSTRACT: Fuzzy numbers are ideally suited to represent uncertainty. In the present paper I have generalized & modified deterministic approach to accept LR - type fuzzy processing time, the sequence performance measurements of make span and job mean flow time are fuzzy in nature. Earlier McMahon & Lee [17]”proposed an algorithm for managing uncertain scheduling. However they have used trapezoidal fuzzy number to represent the processing time. After that“T.P. Hong & T.N. Chuang [13]”proposed a triangular fuzzy Johnson algorithm for n x 2 job shop scheduling problem they have used half inverse operator to compare fuzzy number as well as to find triangular longer time procedure. In the present work I have applied GRV (Generalized Ranking Value) technique for the generalized LR - type fuzzy number.“McCahon & Lee [17]”,“TP Hong & TN Chuang[13]”algorithm can be special case for our proposed algorithm.
