Abstract

We formally introduce the concept of “state” of a batch in production scheduling, we examine how this state impacts the scheduling process, and propose an approach to estimate it based on real-time plant information. We present an online scheduling algorithm based on a state-space resource task network (RTN) formulation and show why and how the resource-task interaction coefficients (which have always been thought to be constants) should be updated based on the state of the executed batches, using real-time information, to obtain better implemented solutions.
