An investigation of a cost-based rule for job-shop scheduling Academic Article uri icon

abstract

  • In this paper, a composite cost-oriented priority scheduling rule is compared to three other well-known rules, that are basically time-oriented. The criteria used for comparison include: total cost per job, number of late jobs, machine utilization, in-process inventory and the number of late jobs in-process. Repeated measures analysis of variance is used and followed by mean comparisons. Results suggest that SPT and cost rides are preferred in most of the criteria. 1973 Taylor and Francis Group, LLC.
