We present a framework and a generalized state-space model formulation that allows modeling several features that are necessary when a scheduling model is used in an online setting. These features are: (1) task-delays and unit breakdowns (2) robust scheduling through the use of conservative yield estimates and processing times; (3) feedback on task-yield estimates before the task finishes; (4) task termination during its execution; and (5) unit capacity degradation and maintenance. Further, we propose a systematic scheme for updating the state of the process, as well as ability to modify states through disturbance parameters, based on feedback information.
