Abstract

We model the working of a civil engineering firm concerned with land development as a three stage flexible flowshop with weak chain precedence constraints and where preemption is allowed. The scheduling objective is to minimize the total tardiness for all the projects. Since solving this problem optimally is very hard, we propose a number of heuristic scheduling procedures which are evaluated extensively on real-life data and artificial problem instances.
