JOB-SHOP SCHEDULING OPTIMIZATION WITH STOCHASTIC PROCESSING TIMES
In this study, a job shop scheduling optimization model under risk has been developed to minimize the make span. This model has been built using Microsoft Excel spreadsheets and solved using @Risk solver. A set of experiments have been also conducted to examine the accuracy of the model and its effectiveness has been proven.
