We evaluate in this paper the qualities of stochastic algorithms, mainly genetic and simulated annealing-type algorithms, against heuristic methods, in the scheduling of workshops. We are particularly in tere sted in flow-shops (minimizing makespan) and one machine schedules ( minimizing total tardiness, or minimizing total flow time) . Many numerical results for various samples are given, and our conclusions are supported by statistical tests. When the initial population is randomly generated… CONTINUE READING
