2 Dispatching Rules ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling 2012 – 2013 Fall semestre 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

3 Classic Scheduling Theory  Look at a specific machine environment with a specific objective  Analyze to prove an optimal policy or to show that no simple optimal policy exists  Thousands of problems have been studied in detail with mathematical proofs! 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

4 Complexity Theory  Classic scheduling theory draws heavily on complexity theory  The complexity of an algorithm is its running time in terms of the input parameters (e.g., number of jobs and number of machines)  Big-Oh notation, e.g., O(n 2 m) 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

5 Polynomial versus NP-Hard 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

6 Scheduling in Practice  Practical scheduling problems cannot be solved this easily!  Need: Heuristic algorithms Knowledge-based systems Integration with other enterprise functions  However, classic scheduling results are useful as a building block 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

7 General Purpose Scheduling Procedures  Some scheduling problems are easy Simple priority rules Complexity: polynomial time  Most scheduling problems are hard Complexity: NP-hard, strongly NP-hard Finding an optimal solution is infeasible in practice  heuristic methods 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

8 Types of Heuristics  Simple Dispatching Rules  Composite Dispatching Rules  Branch and Bound  Beam Search  Simulated Annealing  Tabu Search  Genetic Algorithms Construction Methods Improvement Methods 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

9 Dispatching Rules  Prioritize all waiting jobs job attributes machine attributes current time  Whenever a machine becomes free: select the job with the highest priority  Static or dynamic  Local or Global 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

10  Job attributes: Weight, processing time, due date  Machine attributes:. speed,. no of jobs waiting for processing,. total amount of processing that is waiting in the queue 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

11 Release/Due Date Related  Earliest release date first (ERD) rule variance in throughput times  Earliest due date first (EDD) rule maximum lateness  Minimum slack first (MS) rule Current Time Processing Time Deadline 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

12 Processing Time Related  Longest Processing Time first (LPT) rule balance load on parallel machines makespan  Shortest Processing Time first (SPT) rule sum of completion times WIP  Weighted Shortest Processing Time first (WSPT) rule 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

13 Processing Time Related  Critical Path (CP) rule precedence constraints makespan  Largest Number of Successors (LNS) rule precedence constraints makespan 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

14 Other Dispatching Rules  Service in Random Order (SIRO) rule  Shortest Setup Time first (SST) rule makespan and throughput  Least Flexible Job first (LFJ) rule makespan and throughput  Shortest Queue at the Next Operation (SQNO) rule machine idleness 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

16 Discussion  Very simple to implement  Optimal for special cases  Only focus on one objective  Limited use in practice  Combine several dispatching rules Composite Dispatching Rules 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

17 Composite dispatching rule: An example  Single Machine with Weighted Total Tardiness  No efficient algorithm (NP-Hard)  Branch and bound can only solve very small problems (<30 jobs)  Are there any special cases we can solve? 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

18 Case 1: Tight Deadlines  Assume d j =0  Then  We know that WSPT is optimal for this problem! 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

19 Conclusion  The WSPT is optimal in the extreme case and should be a good heuristic whenever due dates are tight  Now let’s look at the opposite 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

20 Case 2: “Easy” Deadlines  Theorem: If the deadlines are sufficiently spread out then the MS rule is optimal (proof a bit harder)  Conclusion: The MS rule should be a good heuristic whenever deadlines are widely spread out 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

21 Composite Rule  Two good heuristics Weighted Shortest Processing Time (WSPT )  optimal with due dates zero (tight) Minimum Slack (MS)  Optimal when due dates are “spread out” Any real problem is somewhere in between  Combine the characteristics of these rules into one composite dispatching rule 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

22  A Composite Dispatching Rule is a ranking expression that combines a number of basic dispatching rules.  A Basic Rule is a function of attributes of jobs and/or machines.  An Attribute is any property associated with either a job or a machine; it may be constant or time dependent 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

23  Each Basic Rule in the Composite Dispatching Rule has its own scaling parameter that is chosen properly to scale the contribution of the basic rule to the total ranking expression. 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

24 Apparent Tardiness Cost (ATC) Dispatching Rule  New ranking index  When machine becomes free: Compute index for all remaining jobs Select job with the highest value Scaling constant 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

25 Special Cases (Check)  If K is very large: ATC reduces to WSPT  If K is very small and no overdue jobs: ATC reduces to MS  If K is very small and overdue jobs: ATC reduces to WSPT applied to overdue jobs (exp(0)=1) 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

26 Choosing K  Value of K determined empirically  Related to the due date tightness factor  and the due date range factor 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

27 Choosing K  Usually 1.5  K  4.5  Rules of thumb: Fix K=2 for single machine or flow shop. Fix K=3 for dynamic job shops.  Adjusted to reduce weighted tardiness cost in extremely slack or congested job shops  Statistical analysis/empirical experience 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling

28 Composite dispatching: Apparent Tardiness Cost with Setups (ATCS) ATCS combines MS rule, WSPT rule and SST rule: k 1 =due date scaling par. k 2 =setup time scaling par. k 1 and k 2 functions of:  Due Date tightness  Due Date Range  Setup Time Severity 02.05.2015ISE480 Sequencing and Scheduling
