Lot Streaming Lot Streaming Lot streaming  is a term used to describe  the splitting of a job or lot into sublots or  transfer batches so that simultaneous  processing of the sublots on different  machines can be achieved.

Objective Objective Basic Decisions:  Number of sublots  Size of each sublot The objective  is minimizing the makespan, i.e., the  time the last sublot leaves the last machine. It is  assumed that a lot goes through a series of m  machines. In order to reduce the makespan, lot  splitting is considered. Once the last sublot completes  its operation on machine m, the lot is then reconfigured  and sent to another place as a complete lot.
