This paper aims to propose a planning method on a sequence of finished cars for mounting optional components in distribution centers. In automobile manufacturers, finished cars are transported from the final assembly plant to the distribution centers by pure car carriers. In the distribution centers, finished cars are mounted optional components, and transported to the dealers. In this paper, a heuristic method for scheduling amounting order of finished cars is proposed by an Ant Colony Optimization(ACO).
