3 pts. Lect: 3. SIEO W3600 or IEOR E4150: Introduction to Probability and Statistics, IEOR E3608: Introduction to Mathematical Programming or IEOR E4004: Introduction to Operations Research: Deterministic Models. This course is required for undergraduate students majoring in IE and OR. Scheduling concerns the allocation of limited resources to tasks over time. The resources and tasks may take many forms, ranging from scheduling computational threads on a network of workstations to assigning airline crews to various routes. This class will cover models and algorithms for scheduling problems. We will cover a wide range of scheduling models including single machine, multiple machine, shop environments. In each environment we will study a variety of scheduling problems and their solution.
