In a ship-building, a transporter is the moving equipment to transport ship blocks from a workshop to another in a shipyard. The efficient scheduling of transporters has an important role for the operation of a building ship to be completed on schedule. There are the previous studies on the transporter scheduling for moving blocks in a shipyard. These studies have no consideration for the transporter combination to increase the productivity of moving blocks. This paper presents an efficient transporter scheduling model considering transporter combination explicitly. The objective of this model is to minimize the operational cost and maintain the workload balance among transporters. we also present three heuristics algorithms based on tabu search for finding the solution of the model. The efficiency of the proposed heuristics are verified with several computational tests.
