Energy-conscious flow shop scheduling under time-of-use electricity tariffs
A time-indexed integer programming formulation is developed and used to identify manufacturing schedules that minimize electricity cost and the carbon footprint under time-of-use tariffs without compromising production throughput. Expand

Econological scheduling of a manufacturing enterprise operating under a time-of-use electricity tariff
A new ‘econological scheduling’ model combining the economic and ecological aspects of a multi-part multi-machine setup operating under a time-of-use tariff is presented. The operating speed of theExpand
