This paper studies a version of the job shop scheduling problem in which sonie operations have to be scheduled within non-relaxable time windows (i.e earliest/latest possible start time windows). This problem is a well-known NP-complete Constraint Satisfaction Problem (CSP). A popular method for solving this type of problems involves using depth-first backtrack search. In our earlier work, we focused on the development of consistency enforcing techniques and variable/value ordering heuristics… CONTINUE READING
