Classical models of combinatorial problems, such as scheduling, play a key role in optimization research as they allow theoretical and empirical work to focus on core issues of problem solving performance. By their very nature, however, classical models are a simplification of real-world problems. We argue that the challenge now is to address those real-world features that were simplified away in the classical models, and that in order to do this we should investigate how problem features… CONTINUE READING
