Scheduling with batching: a review

Potts, Chris N. and Kovalyov, Mikhail Y. (2000) Scheduling with batching: a review European Journal of Operational Research, 120, (2), pp. 228-249. (doi:10.1016/S0377-2217(99)00153-8).

Record type: Article


There is an extensive literature on models that integrate scheduling with batching decisions. Jobs may be batched if they share the same setup on a machine. Another reason for batching occurs when a machine can process several jobs simultaneously. This paper reviews the literature on scheduling with batching, giving details of the basic algorithms, and referencing other significant results. Special attention is given to the design of efficient dynamic programming algorithms for solving these types of problems.
