Integrating scheduling with batching and lot-sizing: a review of algorithms and complexity

Author: Van Wassenhove, Luk N. ; Potts, Christopher N.INSEAD Area: Technology and Operations Management Series: Working Paper ; 91/10/TM Publisher: Fontainebleau : INSEAD, 1991.Language: EnglishDescription: 31 p.Type of document: INSEAD Working Paper Online Access: Click here Abstract: In many practical situations, batching of similar jobs to avoid set-ups is performed whilst constructing a schedule. On the other hand, each job may consist of many identical items. Splitting a job often results in improved customer service or in reduced throughput time. Thus, implicit in determining a schedule is a lot-sizing decision which specifies how a job is to be split. This paper proposes a general model which combines batching and lot-sizing decisions with scheduling. A review of research on this type of model is given. Some important open problems for which furher research is required are also highlighted
