Abstract

In this paper, we propose an energy-aware feedback control model for production scheduling and capacity control. Specifically, we integrate functions of production scheduling and capacity control, taking into account the costs of energy consumption and machine maintenance varied by production capacity, and the penalty cost imposed by just-in-time production requirements. Continuous control variables are used to adjust the system and the resulting dynamics are modelled. Computational experiments show that interrelated dynamics among these three performance factors are well explained by the proposed controllers, and considerably better energy performance, about 20.0–40.0% improvement, in an energy-aware production compared to a conventional strategy.
