Heuristics for a coupled-operation scheduling problem

  title={Heuristics for a coupled-operation scheduling problem},
  author={Chris N. Potts and J. Douglass Whitehead},
In this paper, we study a strongly NP-hard single machine scheduling problem in which each job consists of two operations that are separated by a time delay which lies within a specified range. The objective is to minimize the makespan. Determining the feasibility and, if applicable, makespan of any proposed permutation of the operations is non-trivial, requiring a longest path algorithm with O(n2) complexity for each permutation. Several heuristic algorithms are proposed: a deterministic and… CONTINUE READING
