Abstract. Since there has been tremendous progress in planning and scheduling in the process industry during the last 20 years, it might be worthwhile to give an overview of the current state-of-the-art of planning and scheduling problems in the chemical process industry. This is the purpose of the current review which has the following structure: we start with some conceptional thoughts and some comments on special features of planning and scheduling problems in the process industry.

Hierarchical scheduling and disturbance management in the process industry
TLDR
A general framework for production scheduling and detailed production scheduling using a two-level hierarchical approach is introduced and an example that is inspired by a real industrial site is presented to show how the PS and DPS may operate and how the integration of these two functions behaves.

Planning and Scheduling Continuous Operations in the Process Industries
TLDR
This paper proposes a new two-phase approach dealing with the two types of constraints separately in the short-term production planning of multiproduct continuous plants in the process industries. Expand
Hierarchical Scheduling and Utility Disturbance Management in the Process Industry
TLDR
Optimization in two timescales is suggested to handle the scheduling and disturbance management problems in a hierarchical fashion together with the integration towards production scheduling. Expand
Modeling industrial lot sizing problems: a review
TLDR
An overview of recent developments in the field of modeling deterministic single-level dynamic lot sizing problems, with a focus on the modeling of various industrial extensions and not on the solution approaches. Expand
Scope for industrial applications of production scheduling models and solution methods
TLDR
The aim of the paper is to focus on the industrial aspects of scheduling and discuss the main characteristics, including strengths and weaknesses of the presented approaches, as well as some lessons learned from industry. Expand
Research Challenges in Planning and Scheduling for Enterprise-Wide Optimization of Process Industries
Abstract Enterprise-wide optimization (EWO) is a new emerging area that lies at the interface of chemical engineering and operations research, and has become a major goal in the process industriesExpand
Integrated campaign planning and resource allocation in batch plants
TLDR
A simple mathematical formulation is presented for integrated resource allocation and campaign planning in multiproduct batch plants and enables decision support pertaining to campaign scheduling, sequence-dependent changeovers, key resource allocations, scheduled maintenance, inventory profiles with safety stock limitations, and new product introduction.

Optimization-Based Scheduling for the Process Industries: From Theory to Real-Life Industrial Applications
TLDR
This work presents a comprehensive review of the theoretical concepts that emerged in the last 30 years of optimization-based scheduling and an overview of the contributions that address real-life industrial case studies of process scheduling is illustrated. Expand
Optimal production planning and scheduling in breweries
TLDR
This work presents a new MILP model, using a mixed discrete-continuous time representation and the immediate precedence framework in order to minimize total production costs, and successfully applies it to a real-life case study provided by a Greek brewery. Expand

Short-Term Planning of Batch Plants in Process Industries
TLDR
The paper proposes a new solution approach which is based on the decomposition of the short-term planning problem into computing appropriate batch sizes and the subsequent scheduling of batches on processing units (batch scheduling). Expand
Discrete optimisation and real-world problems
TLDR
The focus towards the first group is to create some attention with respect to the potential benefits of the method, to transmit a sense of what kind of problems can be tackled, and to increase the acceptance of the approach based on mixed-integer optimisation. Expand
Solving planning and scheduling problems with combined integer and constraint programming
TLDR
This paper presents a realistic planning problem of the chemical industry, which has been successfully treated with a hybrid approach to MIP/CP algorithms, and develops a very efficient hybrid MIP-CP solution strategy. Expand
Issues in the use, design and evolution of process scheduling and planning systems
TLDR
The basic terminology associated with process scheduling and planning problems, the technical issues underlying their formulation and solution, and the considerations associated with installing, scheduling and planner software are reviewed. Expand
Advanced production scheduling for batch plants in process industries
TLDR
A new solution approach is proposed in the case of batch production, which can solve much larger practical problems than the methods known thus far, and the new approach decomposes detailed production scheduling for batch production into batching and batch scheduling. Expand
Combined strategic and operational planning – an MILP success story in chemical industry
TLDR
A model based on mixed-integer linear (MILP) optimization is developed and applied to a real world problem in chemical industry which combines operational planning with strategic aspects and shows how stable the decisions might be with respect to these input data. Expand
A process scheduling problem arising from chemical production planning
TLDR

Resource-constrained project scheduling: Notation, classification, models, and methods
TLDR
A classification scheme is provided, i.e. a description of the resource environment, the activity characteristics, and the objective function, respectively, which is compatible with machine scheduling and which allows to classify the most important models dealt with so far, and a unifying notation is proposed.
