Abstract

Among all strategies supporting the firms' flexibility and agility, the development of human resources versatility holds a promising place. This article presents an investigation of the factors affecting the development of this flexibility lever, related to the problem of planning and scheduling industrial activities, taking into account two dimensions of flexibility: the modulation of working time, which provides the company with fluctuating work capacities, and the versatility of operators: for all the multi-skilled workers, we adopt a dynamic vision of their competences. Therefore, this model takes into account the evolution of their skills over time, depending on how much they were put in practice in previous periods. The model was solved by using an approach relying on genetic algorithm that used an indirect encoding to build the chromosome genotype, and then a serial scheduling scheme is adopted to build the solution.
