survey of dynamic scheduling in manufacturing systems


In most real-world environments, scheduling is an ongoing reactive process where the presence of a variety of unexpected disruptions is usually inevitable, and continually forces reconsideration and revision of pre-established schedules. Many of the approaches developed to solve the problem of static scheduling are often impractical in real-world environments, and the near-optimal schedules with respect to the estimated data may become obsolete when they are released to the shop floor. This paper outlines the limitations of the static approaches to scheduling in the presence of real time information and presents a number of issues that have come up in recent years on dynamic scheduling. The paper defines the problem of dynamic scheduling and provides a review of the state-of-the-art of currently developing research on dynamic scheduling. The principles of several dynamic scheduling techniques, namely, heuristics, meta-heuristics, multi-agent systems, and other artificial intelligence techniques are described in detail, followed by a discussion and comparison of their potential. Most manufacturing systems operate in dynamic environments where usually inevitable unpredictable real-time events may cause a change in the scheduled plans, and a previously feasible schedule may turn infeasible when it is released to the shop floor. Examples of such real-time events include machine failures, arrival of urgent jobs, due date changes, etc. addressed the nature of the gap between the scheduling theory and scheduling practice, the failure of classical scheduling theory to respond to the needs of practical environments, and recent trends in scheduling research which attempt to make it more relevant and applicable. , in their comprehensive survey on intelligent real-time control in flexible manufacturing systems, stated that comparison of theory and scheduling practice showed very little correspondence between the two. Cowling and ) addressed an important gap between scheduling theory and practice, and stated that scheduling models and algorithms are unable to make use of real-time information. The problem of scheduling in the presence of real-time events, termed dynamic scheduling, is of great importance for the successful implementation of real-world scheduling systems. However, very few surveys have been published in this area. In this paper, we focus on a number of issues that have come up in recent years on dynamic scheduling in manufacturing systems. We are primarily concerned with the issue of how to handle the occurrence of real-time events during the execution of a given schedule on the shop floor. The paper is organised as follows. Section 2 defines the problem of dynamic scheduling and the categories of realtime events. Next, Section 3 discusses the rescheduling policies and rescheduling strategies. Section 4 gives a review on previous research work on techniques used to solve
