You have a sequence of 53 products. Each product has got a variable process time depending on rank of initial sequence order and one time unit by a discrete uniform distribution. For a really large number of repetitions each process time could be assumed to last (1+n)/2. A minimum of work in progress time is a result of an alternating long and short process times. But you won't find an optimum that is always a minimum, because of the variability of your process time.

I'm not sure what you are trying to do. Why is the process time dependent the sequence of the item?
