Based on customer demand, estimate: ω s : minimum required amount of material s For final products, ω s is the customer demand Calculated once µ i is known for all tasks consuming material s μ i : minimum cumulative production of task i Calculated once ω s is known for all materials produced by task i Constraint 1 Number of times a task is run Number of batches producing a state Constraint 2 Cumulative amount produced by a task. The RHS is increased so it is an integer multiple of β j max Cumulative amount of a state produced Valid Inequalities for Chemical Production Scheduling Sara Zenner and Christos T. Maravelias Department of Chemical and Biological Engineering University of Wisconsin – Madison - WI P ROBLEM S TATEMENT Given are a set of tasks i I, processing units j J, and materials s S A processing unit j can be used to carry out tasks i I j. Task i in unit j has processing time τ ij Unit j has variable batchsize in [β j min, β j max ] A material can be consumed/produced by multiple tasks i I s- /i I s+. Each task can consume/produce multiple materials; conversion coefficient ρ ιs Materials may have an initial inventory ζ s Customers have demands for final products ϕ st State s is stored in a dedicated tank with capacity γ s Find a schedule showing: When to begin each task Which processing unit to use for each task How much material to process for each task Challenge: Computational performance of MIP scheduling models Previous research has focused on the development of better models Goal: Develop tightening constraints based on specialized propagation algorithms Include recycle streams Consider minimum and maximum unit capacities P ROBLEM F ORMULATION Discrete time: Time points are fixed, and tasks begin/end at time points Continuous time: Time points can vary, so tasks can have any length Decision Variables: Integer Variable: Continuous Variables: B ijt = Batch size of task i in unit j starting at time t S st =Inventory level of material s in storage at time t Objectives:maximize profit, minimize cost, minimize makespan, … Constraints: Material balance and inventory capacity Unit capacities (minimum and maximum) Process at most one task at a time in a unit (This constraint is different for continuous time formulations) A TTAINABLE P RODUCTION If units have min and max capacities, some values of μ i are not feasible μ i is feasible if for some k, where α j k is the number of batches in unit j for range k. Otherwise, increase i to the nearest attainable amount i * ≥ i When a task can take place in multiple units, check all combinations of batches in units V ALID I NEQUALITIES R ESULTS Testing Test 36 discrete-time and 12 continuous-time problems Stop optimization after 30 minutes Algorithm was implemented and the MIPs were solved using GAMS 23.7/CPLEX 12.3 Results Adding the tightening constraints decreases the computational time for problems solved to optimality by a factor of >100 > twice as many problems are solved with tightening Algorithm runs in less than 10 seconds Similar results for discrete and continuous models R ECYCLE L OOPS 1.
