A Game-theoretical Approach for Job Shop Scheduling Considering Energy Cost in Service Oriented Manufacturing

Chang-le TIAN, Guang-hui ZHOU, Feng-tian CHANG


In service-oriented manufacturing mode, a large amount of enterprises open their workshops to provide manufacturing service, and production outsourcing and customer satisfaction are two crucial manners to make profits. In service oriented manufacturing workshops, jobs come from different customers. Competitive relationship among customers should be inevitably taken into account owing to the openness characteristic of workshops and interests’ maximization pursuit of each customer. Moreover, because of increasing energy price, carbon tax policy, carbon label policy, most of customers and manufacturing companies are urgently eager to reduce energy consumption to save cost. Based on above-mentioned requirements, in this paper, a non-cooperative game model for job shop scheduling based on individual profits maximization in service oriented manufacturing environment is given. It takes customer’s cost as optimal objectives in which energy cost of manufacturing process and transportation process are considered. Finally, one case is carried out to validate the rationality of the proposed model.
