The problem is formulated into a pure integer programming model with the objective of minimizing the cycle time of the PCB
assembly line. Furthermore, the mathematical model is solved by the branch-and-bound
(B&B) algorithm in order to get the optimal solution. Finally, a numerical example is
presented to illustrate the mathematical model and the B&B algorithm.

The majority of printed circuit boards are manufactured by applying a layer of copper over the entire surface of the circuit board substrate either on one side or both sides. This creates what is referred to as a blank printed circuit board, meaning the copper is everywhere on the surface. Thanks a lot.

I admire what you have done here. I love the part where you say you are doing this to give back but I would assume by all the comments that is working for you as well. Do you have any more info on this?"
