Stochastic Scheduling : Expectation-Variance Analysis of a Schedule Hardback
Stochastic scheduling is in the area of production scheduling.
There is a dearth of work that analyzes the variability of schedules.
In a stochastic environment, in which the processing time of a job is not known with certainty, a schedule is typically analyzed based on the expected value of a performance measure.
This book addresses this problem and presents algorithms to determine the variability of a schedule under various machine configurations and objective functions.
It is intended for graduate and advanced undergraduate students in manufacturing, operations management, applied mathematics, and computer science, and it is also a good reference book for practitioners.
Computer software containing the algorithms is provided on an accompanying website for ease of student and user implementation.
