We address a rearrangement task by multiple robot in this paper. A rearrangement task has constraints regarding the order of the start, grasping and finish time. Calculating these constraints has a high computational cost. We propose a rearrangement method that calculates constraints efficiently. In our approach, not all constraints are calculated, but some of them will be calculated step by step. The proposed method is tested in a simulated environment with up to 4 mobile robots. The methods are compared, and the results indicate that the proposed method is superior.
