Manufacturing industries play a vital role in defining the growth and development of a nation. More often than not the health of
manufacturing industries is a direct reflection on the economic health and prosperity of a nation. The viability and profitability of any industry
depends on how easily and quickly the industry is adapting itself to changes in demand. To adapt quickly to the changes an industry must be lean,
flexible and should be capable of utilizing the existing resources to optimum. Optimum utilization of resources can only be possible if there is a
proper scheduling system in place. The main objective of this paper is to study the scheduling problems in FMS environment with primary emphasis
on metaheuristic approaches and also describes the development of a simulation model for production planning personnel to carry out optimization
of scheduling in FMS environment. To illustrate the study in detail, a flexible manufacturing system consisting of 6 Machines producing 3 different
parts through 3 different setup of machines and in each setup, 3 alternative routes are considered for this work. The optimization of scheduling
process by using Bacterial Foraging optimization algorithm (BFOA, Genetic algorithm (GA) and Differential Evolution (DE) and choose the best for
the scenario. In order to impress upon the industry management to take proper decision about the significance of the proposed changes, the best
setup and schedule as suggested by metaheuristic approach has been modeled by using the Promodel software and simulated for various runs.

All the authors, conference coordinators, conveners, and guest editors kindly check their articles' originality before submitting them to IJCERT. If any material is found to be duplicate submission or sent to other journals when the content is in the process with IJCERT, fabricated data, cut and paste (plagiarized), at any stage of processing of material, IJCERT is bound to take the following actions.
1. Rejection of the article.
2. The author will be blocked for future communication with IJCERT if duplicate articles are submitted.
3. A letter regarding this will be posted to the Principal/Director of the Institution where the study was conducted.
4. A List of blacklisted authors will be shared among the Chief Editors of other prestigious Journals
We have been screening articles for plagiarism with a world-renowned tool: Turnitin However, it is only rejected if found plagiarized. This more stern action is being taken because of the illegal behavior of a handful of authors who have been involved in ethical misconduct. The Screening and making a decision on such articles costs colossal time and resources for the journal. It directly delays the process of genuine materials.
