For senior/graduate level courses in Production Scheduling.
Focuses on theory and applications of scheduling. The applications are drawn primarily from production and manufacturing environments, but state principles that are relevant to other settings as well.

From the reviews of the third edition: "This well-established text covers both the theory and practice of scheduling. … the text covers a wide range of topics, sometimes adopting a theoretical and at other times a more practical approach. The presentation throughout is clear and elegant with plentiful diagrams to assist the student. The book should be very useful to graduate students, instructors and researchers in the field of scheduling and to the wider operations research community." (Andrew Wirth, Mathematical Reviews, Issue 2009 e)From the Back Cover:
Efficient scheduling of resources is critical to the proper functioning of businesses in today's competitive environment. Scheduling focuses on theoretical as well as applied aspects of the scheduling of resources. It is unique in the range of problems and issues that it covers.
The book consists of three parts. The first part focuses on deterministic scheduling and deals with the combinational problems that arise in deterministic scheduling. The second part covers probabilistic scheduling models. In this part it is assumed that processing times and other problem data are not known in advance with certainty. The third part deals with scheduling in practice. It covers heuristics that are popular with practitioners and also delves into system design and developmental issues.INCLUDES:
A software package especially designed for the readers of this text is available free of charge on the web. Known as LEKIN, this system covers most of the machine environments discussed in this book and enables the user to test many of the algorithms and heuristics described.
This book is of interest to theoreticians and practitioners alike. Graduate students in operations research, industrial engineering, and computer science will find the book to be an accessible and invaluable resource. Scheduling will serve as an essential reference for professionals working on scheduling problems in manufacturing and computing environments.
