A dynamic optimized production scheduling which takes into account demand fluctuation and uncertainty is very critical for the efficient performance of Prefabricated Component Supply Chain. Previous studies consider only the conditions in the production factory and develop corresponding models, ignoring the dynamic demand fluctuation that often occurs at the construction site and its impact on the entire lifecycle of prefabricated construction project. This paper proposes a dynamic flow shop scheduling model for prefabricated components production, which incorporates demand fluctuation such as the advance of due date, insertion of urgent component and order cancellation. An actual prefabrication construction project has been used to validate the proposed multi-objective genetic algorithm model. The experimental results show that the proposed model can achieve a cost saving of up to 43.2%, which shows that the proposed model can cope well with the occurrence of demand fluctuation. This research contributes to the dynamic decision support system for managing prefabricated components.
