The data set of Martino and Pastor (2010) for the setup assembly line balancing and scheduling problem (SUALBSP) – restricted to forward setup times – is based on selected precedence graphs from the classical SALBP-1 benchmark data set. For details of the generation process, we refer to Andres et al. (2008, Section 5.1), who generated a restricted data set, and Martino and Pastor (2010, Section 4.1). The file format used is explained in the “readme.doc” contained in the archive.
