A heuristic algorithm based on multi-assignment procedures for nurse scheduling
This paper tackles a Nurse Scheduling Problem which consists of generating work schedules for a set of nurses while considering their shift preferences and other requirements. The objective is to maximize the satisfaction ...
Lot sizing and furnace scheduling in small foundries
A lot sizing and scheduling problem prevalent in small market-driven foundries is studied. There are two related decision levels: (1) the furnace scheduling of metal alloy production, and (2) moulding machine planning which ...
MULTIPLE ANT COLONY SYSTEM FOR A VRP WITH TIME WINDOWS AND SCHEDULED LOADING

Minimizing total tardiness in a stochastic single machine scheduling problem using approximate dynamic programming
This paper addresses the non-preemptive single machine scheduling problem to minimize total tardiness. We are interested in the online version of this problem, where orders arrive at the system at random times. Jobs have ...
MIP-based decomposition strategies for large-scale scheduling problems in multiproduct multistage batch plants: A benchmark scheduling problem of the pharmaceutical industry
(Elsevier Science, 2010-12)
An efﬁcient systematic iterative solution strategy for solving real-world scheduling problems in multiproduct multistage batch plants is presented. Since the proposed method has its core a mathematical model, two alternative ...
Heuristic methods for the single machine scheduling problem with different ready times and a common due date
(TAYLOR & FRANCIS LTDABINGDON, 2012)
The single machine scheduling problem with a common due date and non-identical ready times for the jobs is examined in this work. Performance is measured by the minimization of the weighted sum of earliness and tardiness ...
Genetic algorithms for the no-wait flowshop sequencing problem with time restrictions

Solving scheduling problems in a multi-stage multi-product batch pharmaceutical industry
(AIDIC Servizi, 2010-09)
An iterative two-stage decomposition solution strategy for solving real-world scheduling problems in multi-stage multi-product batch plants is presented. The proposed method has as a core a mixed integer mathematical model, ...
