Theory of Schedulingby Richard W. Conway
Synopses & Reviews
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.
