This new edition of the well established text Scheduling - Theory, Algorithms, and Systems provides an up-to-date coverage of important theoretical models in the scheduling literature as well as significant scheduling problems that occur in the real world. It again includes supplementary material in the form of slide-shows from industry and movies that show implementations of scheduling systems. The main structure of the book as per previous edition consists of three parts. The first part focuses on deterministic scheduling and the related combinatorial problems. The second part covers probabilistic scheduling models; in this part it is assumed that processing times and other problem data are random and not known in advance. The third part deals with scheduling in practice; it covers heuristics that are popular with practitioners and discusses system design and implementation issues. All three parts of this new edition have been revamped and streamlined. The references have been made completely up-to-date. Theoreticians and practitioners alike will find this book of interest. Graduate students in operations management, operations research, industrial engineering, and computer science will find the book an accessible and invaluable resource. Scheduling - Theory, Algorithms, and Systems will serve as an essential reference for professionals working on scheduling problems in manufacturing, services, and other environments. Reviews of third edition: This well-established text covers both the theory and practice of scheduling. The book begins with motivating examples and the penultimate chapter discusses some commercial scheduling systems and examples of their implementations." (Mathematical Reviews, 2009)
This book on scheduling covers both theoretical models as well as scheduling problems in the real world. It includes a CD that contains movies with regard to implementations of scheduling systems as well as slide-shows from the industry.
This comprehensive book focuses on the theory and applications of scheduling. Applications are primarily drawn from production and manufacturing environments, but state principles relevant to other settings as well. Includes numerous worked out examples, Deterministic Models, Stochastic Models, Applications, and more. For anyone interested in scheduling, project management, production planning, and inventory control.
Scheduling and multicriteria optimisation theory have been subject, separately, to numerous studies. Since the last fifteen years, multicriteria scheduling problems have been subject to a growing interest. However, a gap between multicriteria scheduling approaches and multicriteria optimisation field exists. This book is a first attempt to collect the elementary of multicriteria optimisation theory and the basic models and algorithms of multicriteria scheduling. It is composed of numerous illustrations, algorithms and examples which may help the reader in understanding the presented concepts.
This updated edition offers an indispensable exposition on real-time computing, with particular emphasis on predictable scheduling algorithms. It introduces the fundamental concepts of real-time computing, demonstrates the most significant results in the field, and provides the essential methodologies for designing predictable computing systems used to support time-critical control applications. Along with an in-depth guide to the available approaches for the implementation and analysis of real-time applications, this revised edition contains a close examination of recent developments in real-time systems, including limited preemptive scheduling, resource reservation techniques, overload handling algorithms, and adaptive scheduling techniques. This volume serves as a fundamental advanced-level textbook. Each chapter provides basic concepts, which are followed by algorithms, illustrated with concrete examples, figures and tables. Exercises and solutions are provided to enhance self-study, making this an excellent reference for those interested in real-time computing for designing and/or developing predictable control applications.
Fierce competition in today's global market provides a powerful motivation for developing ever more sophisticated logistics systems. This book, written for the logistics manager and researcher, presents a survey of the modern theory and application of logistics. The goal of the book is to present the state-of-the-art in the science of logistics management. As a result, the authors have written a timely and authoritative survey of this field that many practitioners and researchers will find makes an invaluable companion to their work.
This book focusses on planning and scheduling applications. Planning and Scheduling are forms of decision-making that play an important role in most manufacturing and service industries. The planning and scheduling function in a company uses mathematical techniques or heuristic methods to allocate limited resources to the activities that have to be done. The book consists of four parts: Part I describes the general characteristics of scheduling models in manufacturing and in services. Part II considers the various classes of planning and scheduling models in manufacturing, and Part III covers the various classes of planning and scheduling models in service settings. Part IV deals with system design, development and implementation issues. The detailed mathematics can be found in the appendices. The book contains examples and exercises throughout and a number of case studies can be found in the attached CD-Rom.
