Scheduling a proportionate flow shop of batching machines ...

Sep 17, 2020  10%  In this paper we study a proportionate flow shop of batching machines with release dates and a fixed number \(m \ge 2\) of machines. The scheduling problem has so far barely received any attention in the literature, but recently its importance has increased significantly, due to applications in the industrial scaling of modern bio-medicine production processes.

Scheduling with batching: A review - ScienceDirect

Jan 16, 2000  For the case of m identical parallel batching machines and an arbitrary regular objective function, where there is no restriction on the batch size for any machine, Brucker et al. observe that there exists an optimal solution comprising an SPT-batch schedule on each machine. For a fixed number of identical parallel machines, therefore, the ...

Each batch machine can process no greater than a given number of jobs at a time. The jobs in a batch start and complete their processing at the same time, and the actual processing time of a job is equal to the processing ...

Nov 26, 2014  Li and Yuan [ 24] studied the online scheduling on m unbounded parallel-batch machines to minimize maximum flow time. They claimed that no online algorithm has a competitive ratio less than 1+\lambda _m, where \lambda _m^2+ (m+1)\lambda _m=1. An online algorithm with a competitive ratio of 1+\frac {1} {m} was proposed.

Scheduling a Proportionate Flow Shop of Batching Machines

In standard scheduling literature, e.g. in [Bru07], two different kinds of batching machines are commonly distinguished. For a serial batching machine, the processing time of a batch is the sum of the processing times of the jobs included in the batch. Usually, an additional setup time is incurred. In contrast, for a parallel batching machine, the
