This paper studies the scheduling of lots (jobs) of different product types (job families) on parallel machines, where not all machines are able (i.e. are qualified) to process all job families (non-identical machines). This is known in the literature as scheduling with machine eligibility restrictions. A special time constraint, associated with each job(More)
Scheduling optimization in semiconductor manufacturing is always a crucial task in production performance indicators such as machine utilization, cycle time and delivery times. With the increasing complexity of fabrication techniques and scales, scheduling and control activities are inevitably confronted with each other and shall be integrated(More)
In this paper, we are interested in the integration of scheduling and Advanced Process Control (APC) in semiconductor manufacturing. We consider the problem of scheduling jobs of different families on non-identical parallel machines. A special time constraint, associated to each job family, must be satisfied for a machine to remain qualified to process the(More)

This year's RCN Congress will debate the importance of retaining health visiting as a service available to all. On the basis of her analysis of recent professional and political events, this author predicts the likely capacity of health visiting to market its universal approach to population health.
