A Branch and Bound Algorithm for the Job-Shop Scheduling Problem

  title={A Branch and Bound Algorithm for the Job-Shop Scheduling Problem},
  author={Peter Brucker and Bernd Jurisch and Bernd Sievers},
  journal={Discrete Applied Mathematics},
A fast branch and bound algorithm for the job-shop scheduling problem has been developed. Among other hard problems it solves the 10 x 10 benchmark problem which has been open for more than 20 years. We will give a complete description of this algorithm and will present computational results.
