In this paper, we investigate the influence of several order release strategies on the performance of a distributed shifting bottleneck heuristic. The shifting bottleneck heuristic is a decomposition approach that solves the overall scheduling problem by solving a sequence of tool group scheduling problems and determines the overall solution by using a disjunctive graph. We discuss a distributed version of the original shifting bottleneck heuristic. By using a hierarchical approach we first… CONTINUE READING
