Genetic Release Control for Loading of Trucks in an Unrelated Parallel Machine Supply Chain Environment
This paper presents a multi-objective mathematical model of unrelated parallel machine, earliness-tardiness, noncommon
due date scheduling problem, for jobs with varying processing times, where the objective is to minimize the sum of
the absolute deviations of job completion times from their corresponding due dates for the different weighted earliness and
tardiness combinations. An enhanced Genetic Release Control procedure identifies the best sequences for the different
weighted combinations of earliness and tardiness measures for efficient loading of trucks in a supply chain environment. The
effects of one objective over the other have also been analyzed.
