Process planning is usually performed without concurrent considerations on production constraints, and hence the resultant plans are less valid in terms of schedulibility. Among several attempts to create integrated algorithms for process planning and scheduling, very little has been done successfully in developing an integration prototype under which the related integration algorithms can be justified. This paper first briefly reviews the background of this dynamic multi-objective decision problem. Then a prototype is proposed with a heuristic integrative algorithm-machine selection using a dynamic decision table which is maintained by dynamic loading feedback method. A simulation study was performed to verify the algorithm and the significant outcomes were obtained.
