New results for an open time-dependent scheduling problem

We present several new results for a single machine time-dependent scheduling problem of minimizing the total completion time of a set of linearly deteriorating jobs with unit basic processing times. First, we show new properties of cyclic …


Stochastic programming approach for unidirectional quay crane scheduling problem with uncertainty

Quay crane scheduling is a key aspect of container terminal operation, which can be regarded as a decision-making process with uncertainty. Each task involves stochastic loading and unloading operation times owing to the existence of uncertainty.


Dynamic speed scaling minimizing expected energy consumption for real-time tasks

This paper proposes a discrete time Markov decision process approach to compute the optimal on-line speed scaling policy to minimize the energy consumption of a single processor executing a finite or infinite set of jobs with real-time …

A decomposition heuristic for rotational workforce scheduling

In rotational workforce planning, a schedule is constructed from a sequence of work and rest periods. Each employee starts at a different part of the schedule, and after a certain amount of time, the schedule repeats. The length of the schedule …


A periodic optimization approach to dynamic pickup and delivery problems with time windows

In dynamic pickup and delivery problems with time windows (PDPTWs), potentially urgent request information is released over time. This gradual data availability means the decision-making process must be continuously repeated. These decisions are …
