Summary: This paper presents an approach based on a multi layer neural network algorithm (MLNNA) to find a sequence of jobs for flow shop scheduling problems with the objective of minimise the makespan. The purpose of this paper is to develop an artificial intelligence and trained a neural network model for solving the flow shop scheduling problem which gives a best jobs sequence with the objective of minimise the makespan. The effectiveness of the proposed MLNNA method is compared with many problems selected from different papers. A large number of problems are solved with the present MLNNA model and it is found suitable and workable in all the cases.
