The most important drawback of existing methods used to solve the sequencing problems is the sequence must have a few products and dependent setup time for single demand. The main advantage of this new methodology, it using two methods to determine optimum products sequences with many products and muti-demands and also applied in Wasit company, that has production line produce multi-products. First, modified assignment method (MAM) depends on fundamental of TSP and using it decision maker to determine optimum products sequences step by step or demand by demand to short planning. The second method genetic algorithm (GA) depend on fundamental of (TSPPCA) and using it decision maker to determine optimum products sequences as global optimal or optimal entirely or long planning.
