About this book


Scheduling and multicriteria optimisation theory have been subject, separately, to numerous studies. Since the last fifteen years, multicriteria scheduling problems have been subject to a growing interest. However, a gap between multicriteria scheduling approaches and multicriteria optimisation field exists. This book is a first attempt to collect the elementary of multicriteria optimisation theory and the basic models and algorithms of multicriteria scheduling. It is composed of numerous illustrations, algorithms and examples which may help the reader in understanding the presented concepts.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book is devoted to a particular class of scheduling problems, namely, to those that involve multiple criteria for the evaluation of the constructed schedules. This approach is highly motivated by practical needs, several examples of which illustrate the thesis well. … The book is complemented by two appendices presenting, respectively, the notation of scheduling problems and a synthetic summary of the results presented. Summing up, I consider this book being a valuable introduction to the interesting field of multicriteria scheduling problems … ." (Jacek Blazewicz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1126 (3), 2008)
