Expertise: Production planning and scheduling
Job Release Control and Synchronized Scheduling in Production Systems
Project Advisor
Assoc Prof Appa Iyer Sivakumar
Duration :
September 2003 to March 2005

Project Abstract:

Scheduling of jobs in production environment for synchronized completions is more relevant with the advent of Just-In-Time manufacturing. Both early and late completions of jobs are not desirable in many delivery situations like dispatching of jobs either independently or together for a customized delivery or assembly, and particularly when the finished jobs incur costs for preserving/ holding them (or penalties for late deliveries) till other matching jobs complete. Synchronization of job release and scheduling of the resources, with delivery requirements of jobs has many benefits in addition to providing economic advantage in the form of cost savings. Our research addresses the problems on synchronization of scheduling and deliveries of jobs in a dynamic production environment.
