Synopsis: Scheduling is a broad research area and scheduling problems arise from several application domains (production systems, logistic, computer science, etc.). Solving scheduling problems requires tools of combinatorial optimization, exact or approximated algorithms. Flexibility is at the frontier between predictive deterministic approaches and reactive or ?on-line? approaches. The purpose of flexibility is to provide one or more solutions adapted to the context of the application in order to provide the ideal solution. This book focuses on the integration of flexibility and robustness considerations in the study of scheduling problems. After considering both flexibility and robustness, it then covers various scheduling problems, treated with an emphasis on flexibility or robustness, or both.

From the Back Cover: Scheduling is a diverse research area, and scheduling problems arise from many application domains, such as production systems, logistics and computer science. Solving scheduling problems requires the use and knowledge of tools such as combinatorial optimization and exact or approximated algorithms.

Flexibility is at the interface between predictive deterministic approaches and reactive or 'on-line' approaches. It exists when some information (which may not be complete or perfect) about the problem is known, which is fairly reliable and where it is likely that there will be a difference between the forecast plan and its execution. the purpose of flexibility is to provide on or more solutions tailored to the nature of the application in order to provide the ideal solution. Robustness, which characterizes the performance of an algorithm when data are subject to uncertainty, is defined as being able to be resistant to approximations and ignorance.

This book focuses on the integration of flexibility and robustness considerations in the study of scheduling problems. After considering both flexibility and robustness, it then covers various scheduling problems, treating them with an emphasis on either flexibility o robustness, or both.
