An up-to-date and comprehensive treatment of the fundamentals ofscheduling theory, including recent advances and state-of-the-arttopics

Principles of Sequencing and Scheduling strikes a unique balancebetween theory and practice, providing an accessible introductionto the concepts, methods, and results of scheduling theory and itscore topics. With real-world examples and up-to-date modelingtechniques, the book equips readers with the basic knowledge neededfor understanding scheduling theory and delving into itsapplications. The authors begin with an introduction and overviewof sequencing and scheduling, including single-machine sequencing,optimization and heuristic solution methods, and models withearliness and tardiness penalties. The most current material onstochastic scheduling, including correct scheduling of safety timeand the use of simulation for optimization, is then presented andintegrated with deterministic models. Additional topical coverageincludes:

  • Extensions of the basic model
  • Parallel-machine models

  • Flow shop scheduling

  • Scheduling groups of jobs

  • The job shop problem

  • Simulation models for the dynamic job shop

  • Network methods for project scheduling

  • Resource-constrained project scheduling

  • Stochastic and safe scheduling

Extensive end-of-chapter exercises are provided, some of whichare spreadsheet-oriented, and link scheduling theory to the mostpopular analytic platform among today's students andpractitioners—the Microsoft Office Excel® spreadsheet.Extensive references direct readers to additional literature, andthe book's related Web site houses material that reinforces thebook's concepts, including research notes, data sets, and examplesfrom the text.
