This paper presents the application of self organinsing migration algorithm (SOMA) to the scheduling problem of flow shop. Flow shop is regarded as the most widely utilized shop management system. Two different benchmark problems are attempted with good results obatined both in comparison with the optimal and other published heuristics.
