Scheduling Issue


Hi Friends,

Your advice is solicited for the below issue.

Shift per day- 2 (1st shift 6am to 2pm, 2pm to 10pm, 3rd shift non working)

Finished Material - A

Routing of A has 4 operation for lot size 500000 pcs

Operation 1- granulation --- time required for 500000 pcs 4hr

Operation 2- encapsulation --- time required for 500000 pcs 130hr

Operation 3- coating --- time required for 500000 pcs 7hr

Operation 4- drying --- time required for 500000 pcs 4hr

Resource for encapsulation is a container, on which we can load components maximum for 50000 pcs and take 13hrs to complete. Operator only starts the machine encapsulation only when there is 13hr is available in resource capacity, that means if he starts today morning at 6am one lot so he will complete this lot by 7pm, and after 7pm he will keep the encapsulation machine idle for next 3hr of 2nd shift.

Please suggest a solution for scheduling.
