Abstract

Existing ubiquitous manufacturing (UM) systems usually plan production and logistics simultaneously to enhance efficiency. A UM system can be further benefited by pursuing economical fabrication, improving product quality, and enhancing partner relationships, which involves possibly conflicting goals, but has rarely been investigated. To address this, an evolving fuzzy approach is proposed in this study by hybridizing diversifying fuzzy analytic hierarchy process (DFAHP), genetic algorithm (GA), and fuzzy technique for order preference by similarity to the ideal solution (FTOPSIS). The evolving fuzzy approach has been applied to a UM system. The superiority of the evolving fuzzy approach over existing methods in meeting various goals was successfully demonstrated by the experimental results.
