The traditional focus of scheduling research is on finding schedules with a low implementation cost. However, in many real world scheduling applications finding a robust or flexible schedule is just as important. A robust schedule is a quality schedule expected to still be acceptable if something unforeseen happens, while a flexible schedule is a quality schedule expected to be easy to change. In this paper the robustness and flexibility of schedules produced by minimising different robustness… CONTINUE READING
