Recent Advances in Scheduling and Its Applications

Description

Scheduling is one of the active areas of discrete optimization that plays a crucial role in manufacturing and service industries and is probably its driving force today. The scheduling theory is developed largely by researchers in management science, industrial engineering, and operations research. There is still a lively interest in classical models incorporating new features that reflect modern industrial processes. A main motivation is that thousands of real-life problems can be formulated as abstract scheduling problems. The new scheduling problems arising from practical production processes have spawned a new area in scheduling field.

We invite authors to submit original research articles as well as review articles that will cover a wide range of topics covering new theory development, innovative modelling and analysis, and novel applications.

Potential topics include, but are not limited to:

  • Scheduling games
  • Multiagent scheduling
  • Multicriteria scheduling
  • Supply chain scheduling
  • Scheduling with batching
  • Scheduling with variable processing times such as learning effects, aging effects, deteriorating jobs, and controllable processing times
  • Coordinated scheduling with production and transportation
  • Scheduling under resource constraints
  • Scheduling in flexible manufacturing and service systems
