Abstract

This chapter presents seven case studies of practical scheduling implemented at several manufacturing plants located in the northeast of the United States. Production engineers managing the manufacturing helped us to gather data on the shop floor. To study these cases we developed a scheduling software which is based on the numerical methods presented in Chapter 7. The software has an easy graphical user interface and runs under a Windows environment. The software as well as a tutorial can be found in the disk attached to this book (see file “Readme” for details of the disk).
