Abstract: The objective of this paper is that of showing that relatively complex manufacturing systems can be modeled as Time Event Graphs and that significant optimization problems can be stated and solved using this representation. In particular, the attention is focused on the multi-objective optimization of the system throughput, and of a function weighting the work-in-progress along with the buffer space in finite buffers, with respect to: a) the lot-sizes of the components flowing through the system; 2) the service sequences at the various machines; and 3) the work-in-progress and the (finite) bugger sizes.
