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. Keywords - Genetic Release Control, Earliness, Tardiness, Unrelated Parallel Machine Scheduling.
