There has been significant progress in the area of short-term scheduling of batch processes, including the solution of industrial-sized problems, in the last 20 years. The main goal of this paper is to provide an up-to-date review of the state-of-the-art in this challenging area. Main features, strengths and limitations of existing modeling and optimization(More)
This paper presents two alternative decomposition approaches for the efficient solution of multistage, multiproduct batch scheduling problems comprising hundreds of batch operations. Both approaches follow the principle of first obtaining a good schedule (constructive stage), by considering only a subset of the full set of orders at a time, and then(More)
