Abstract : Several studies have been made concerning the control and the flow optimisation in car assembly plants in order to satisfy the expectations and customer needs. But investigations of the same nature were not observed so far in component manufacturing plants. That is why we propose in this paper to study the production management problem in an engine plant, in particular the scheduling problem of an engine assembly workshop. Firstly, we present the characteristics of an engine plant. Secondly, we provide an integer linear model, which helps the manager to take the best decisions for the scheduling of the engines. This optimisation model tries to group and sequence the engines so that all the workshop constraints, required by the production manager and the customers, are satisfied. We apply this tool to real data, coming from an engine assembly workshop, and the obtained results are compared to the current manual schedules.
