Simulation Optimization for Operating Room Scheduling
This paper presents a case study on operating room scheduling in a small hospital in Chile. Patient flow was represented using a discrete-event simulation model that considered the randomness associated with the primary ...
udpSkeduler: A web architecture based decision support system for course and classroom scheduling
A key process for post-secondary educational institutions is the definition of course timetables and classroom assignments. Manual scheduling methods require enormous amounts of time and resources to deliver results of ...
Multiobjective parallel machine scheduling in the sawmill industry using memetic algorithms
This study presents a multiobjective optimization algorithm that is termed memetic algorithm with compromise search (MACS). This algorithm, proposed by the authors, combines genetic evolution with local search, in the same ...
