In this work, multicriteria decision making objective for flow shop scheduling with sequence dependent set up time and due dates have been developed. Multicriteria decision making objective includes total tardiness , total earliness and makespan simultaneously which is very effective decision making for scheduling jobs in modern manufacturing environment. As problem of flow shop scheduling is NP hard and to solve this in a reasonable time, four Special heuristics (SH) based Hybrid Genetic Algorithm (HGA) have also been developed for proposed multicriteria objective function. A computational analysis upto 200 jobs and 20 machines problems has been conducted to evaluate the performance of four HGA’s. The analysis showed the superiority of SH1 based HGA for small size and SH3 based HGA for large size problem for multicriteria flow shop scheduling with sequence dependent set up time and due dates. Keywords: Flow shop scheduling, Genetic algorithm, Sequence dependent set up time, Total tardiness, Total earliness, makespan
