Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This comprehensive text explores the mathematical models underlying the theory of scheduling. Organized according to scheduling problem type, it examines three solution techniques: algebraic, probabilistic, and Monte Carlo simulation by computer. Topics include problems of sequence, measures for schedule evaluation, finite sequencing for a single machine, and further problems with one operation per job. Additional chapters cover flow-shop scheduling, the general n/m job-shop problem, general network problems related to scheduling, selection disciplines in a single-server queuing system, single-server queuing systems with setup classes, multiple-server queuing models, and experimental investigation of the continuous job-shop process. 1967 edition.

Book News Annotation:

A textbook for a one-semester graduate course in operations research. The arrangement is primarily according to the type of scheduling problem rather than the technique of its solution. Some of the solutions require students to have a background in advanced probability. Reprinted from a 1967 publication by Addison-Wesley. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)

I just had a glance over the content of the book and I think it is one of the best books so far. I was searching for the book in the library only to find out that the library has no copy of it. Please, I need the book badly for my study. Where do I get a copy to buy in Canada.

i have read this book during my undergraduate course.this is very good book.i got basic knowledge on task scheduling and i felt to do an research project based on this area.so i want your permission to study this book for my research project.
