Quantifying and enforcing robustness in staff rostering

Employee absences are inevitable in practice due to illness, heavy workloads or accidents. These unforeseen events result in the disruption of employee shift rosters, which are then typically repaired using re-rostering methods. Despite their …


Competitive algorithms for demand response management in a smart grid

We consider a scheduling problem that abstracts a model of demand response management in a smart grid. We investigate the problem with a set of unrelated machines, and each job j (representing a client demand) is characterized by its release date …


Calibrations scheduling with arbitrary lengths and activation length

Bender et al. (SPAA 2013) proposed a theoretical framework for testing in contexts where safety mistakes must be avoided. Testing in such a context is made by machines that need to be calibrated on a regular basis. Since calibrations have a …


A hybrid evolutionary approach to job-shop scheduling with generic time lags

This paper addresses the job shop scheduling problem including time lag constraints. This is an extension of the job shop scheduling problem with many applications in real production environments, where extra (minimum and maximum) delays can be …

Makespan minimization with OR-precedence constraints

We consider a variant of the NP-hard problem of assigning jobs to machines to minimize the completion time of the last job. Usually, precedence constraints are given by a partial order on the set of jobs, and each job requires all its predecessors …
