In the current competitive and globalized manufacturing scenario Distributed Manufacturing Environments are increasing, and it turns mandatory to explore improved operational approaches. For enhanced simultaneous balancing and scheduling jobs in a Distributed Manufacturing Environment (DME) a mathematical model of Ranked Sequence Positional Weight (RSPW) is proposed. The model capabilities are analysed through a test problem and the results have demonstrated that the proposed RSPW heuristics mathematical model do perform better than other competitive approaches.
