Abstract: In clothing manufacturing, manufacturers arc now facing difliculty with production planning and scheduling at their customers apply the just-in-timc philosophy to their husinesses. Although various production scheduling and planning heuristics have been proposed and applied by many researchers, only a few studies have been conducted in the clothing industry. This paper describes the development of an effective artificial intelligence technique. Genetic Algorithm (GA), incorporated with an 'earline.s.s' and 'tardiness* production scheduling and planning method to plan the clothing manufacturing process. Additionally, a .segmentation strategy is developed to divide the production-planning period to overcome the problem of chromosome selection in GA. The experimental results demonstrate tbe effectiveness of the proposed method in the clothing manufacturing process.
