Abstract We consider the problem of scheduling under demand uncertainty a multiproduct batch plant represented through the State Task Network. Given a scheduling horizon consisting of several time-periods in which product demands are placed, the objective is to select a schedule that maximizes the expected profit. We present a multistage stochastic Mixed Integer Linear Programming (MILP) model, wherein certain decisions are made irrespective of the realization of the uncertain parameters, andâ€¦Â CONTINUE READING
