Scheduling can be divided into two classes, namely, predictive and reactive scheduling. The former addresses problems with initially available jobs, deterministic processing times and available machines throughout the scheduling horizon; the latter has problems with random job arrivals, non-deterministic processing times and unpredictable events such as machine breakdowns. This paper presents a complete multiple agents' framework for reactive job shop scheduling. It provides a theoretical… CONTINUE READING
