Abstract: In order to achieve the optimal selection and allocation of various mould manufacturing resources under a manufacturing network environment, this study developed a bi-level programming model and proposed a related solution. Based on a thorough analysis of the allocation process of mould manufacturing resources, the calculation formulas of the task’s satisfaction with resource service quality and the load balance rate of resources were derived, and a bi-level programming mathematical model for the optimal allocation of mould manufacturing resources was established. Moreover, a hierarchical discrete particle swarm optimization (HDPSO) algorithm, which was based on the principle of non-dominated sorting in a multi-objective optimization, was designed for solving the model. Finally, a mould manufacturing project was selected for experimentally validating the feasibility of the proposed bi-level programming model for the optimal allocation of resources and the effectiveness of the proposed HDPSO algorithm.
