This research intends to find out any development of a robust multi-objective for lead time optimal control problem in a multi-stage assembly system model. Assembly system modeling is possible by the help of the open queue network. A working station includes one or infinite servers and just manufacturing or assembly operations are performed therein. Each part has a separate entry process and independent of each other. It is completely based upon Poisson process.Serving Lead Time of Stations are

All stations have bounded uncertain unrecyclable wastes which are completely independent in compliance with Erlang distribution. Uncertainty in the problem parameters has been suggested as robust multi-objective optimal control model in which we have three incompatible target functions including cyclic operation cost minimization, average lead time minimization and lead time variance. Finally, target progress method has been applied in order to achieve serving optimal speeds and solve discrete time of the main problem approximately. The proposed model could present a suitable solution even for the same problem as mentioned in other related papers along with some considerable results in parameter uncertainty conditions.
