Abstract—The research combines two heuristic algorithms, COMSOAL and Priority rule-based algorithm, to design a production scheduling algorithm. Meanwhile it refers to dispatching rule and wafer start rule. Also base on the requirements and characters of wafer foundry companies, it designs proper capacity constraint model and wafer start rule to construct production planning system. Using simple, fast and flexible methods to generate reasonable and feasible production plans. The results of the research can give the wafer foundry companies several contributions. First, it shortens the execution time of generating a production plan. It improves the flexibility and efficiency of production planning. Second, the resolution of production plan is raised from the summary of manufacturing process and product type to full product name of order and demand allocation. It improves the resolution and accuracy of information analysis. Third, the planning period of wafer start plan is improved as well. Last, the frequency of production planning operation is improved from once a fortnight to once a week. The time interval is shortened.

Index Terms—wafer foundry, production planning; heuristic algorithm, production scheduling, capacity constraint
