9 Summary In this paper we have presented a case study of combinatorial optimization in PCB manufacturing from Indian Industry. The methodology is based on a heuristic proposed by Chang, Hwang and Murty [3]. The heuristic approach involves solving series of travelling salesman and assignment problems alternatively. We have also presented a formulation in which the process calls for usage of different sizes of feeders. The usage of different types of feeders poses problems in formulating the assignment problems.

Let a denote the assignment. The distance travelled by the head to mount Cπ1 is given by m m i=1 i=1 d(MRP, RP) + ∑ ait(π1 ) d(RP, Fi ) + ∑ ait(π1 ) d(Fi , Cπ1 ). 4) Next, to mount Cπ2 , the distance travelled by head from Cπ1 to Cπ2 is given by m m i=1 i=1 ∑ ait(π2 ) d(Cπ1 , Fi ) + ∑ ait(π2 ) d(Fi , Cπ2 ). 5) Hence we can write f (π , a) = d(MRP, RP) + ∑m i=1 ait(π1 ) [d(RP, Fi ) + d(Fi , Cπ1 )] + ∑m i=1 ait(π2 ) [d(Cπ1 , Fi ) + d(Fi , Cπ2 )] + ∑m i=1 ait(πn ) [d(Cπn−1 , Fi ) + d(Fi , Cπn )] + ...

This step is somewhat complex and needs thorough understanding and meticulous programming. • Developing interface program with professional OR package used to solve the APs and TSPs. This program should (i) prepare the input data files for the OR package, (ii) prepare instructions to the OR package, (iii) execute the OR package and extract solutions. • Evaluating the solutions in each iteration, keeping track of the objective values, and checking for termination criterion. • Providing final solution to the user.
