This study considers the identical parallel machines operational fixed job scheduling problem with machine-dependent job weights. A job is either processed in a fixed interval or is not processed at all. Our aim is to maximise the total weight of the processed jobs. We show that the problem with machine eligibility constraints resides as a special case of this problem. We identify some special polynomially solvable cases and propose a branch-and-bound (BB) algorithm that employs efficient bounding schemes and dominance conditions. Computational experience on large-sized problem examples reveals the satisfactory performance of the BB algorithm.

Spread time considerations in operational fixed job scheduling
Eliiyi, D. T.; Azizoğlu, Meral (Informa UK Limited, 2006-10-15)
In this study, we consider the operational fixed job scheduling problem on identical parallel machines. We assume that the jobs have fixed ready times and deadlines, and spread time constraints are imposed on machines. Our objective is to select a set of jobs for processing so as to maximise the total weight. We show that the problem is strongly NP-hard, and we investigate several special polynomially solvable cases. We propose a branch and bound algorithm that employs size reduction mechanisms, dominance c...
Operational fixed interval scheduling problem on uniform parallel machines
Bekki, Oezguen Baris; Azizoğlu, Meral (Elsevier BV, 2008-04-01)
In this study, we address an operational fixed interval scheduling problem on uniform parallel machines. Our objective is to maximize the total weight of the jobs processed. We show that the problem is NP-hard in the strong sense and develop polynomial time algorithms for some special cases. We propose a branch and bound algorithm that employs dominance conditions and tight bounds. The results of our computational tests have revealed that the algorithm returns optimal solutions for problem instances with up...
Operational fixed job scheduling problem
Türsel Eliiyi, Deniz; Azizoğlu, Meral; Department of Industrial Engineering (2004)
In this study, we consider the Operational Fixed Job Scheduling Problem on identical parallel machines. The problem is to select a subset of jobs for processing among a set of available jobs with fixed arrival times and deadlines, so as to maximize the total weight. We analyze the problem under three environments: Working time constraints, Spread time constraints, and Machine dependent job weights. We show that machine eligibility constraints appear as a special case of the last environment. We settle the c...
Fixed job scheduling on uniform parallel machines
Bekki, Özgün Barış; Azizoğlu, Meral; Department of Industrial Engineering (2003)
In this study, a fixed job scheduling problem on uniform parallel machines is considered. The objective function is the maximization of the total weight of the jobs processed. We show that it is NP-hard and develop polynomial time algo rithms for some special cases. We propose a branch and bound algorithm that employs dominance conditions and powerful lower and upper bounding proce dures. Computational analysis is conducted to investigate the effects of changing certain parameters on the difficulty of the p...
Operational fixed job scheduling problem under spread time constraints: a branch-and-price algorithm
Solyali, O.; Ozpeynirci, O. (Informa UK Limited, 2009-01-01)
This study addresses the operational fixed job scheduling problem under spread time constraints. The problem is to select a subset of jobs having fixed ready times and deadlines for processing on identical parallel machines such that total weight of the selected jobs is maximised. We first give a mathematical formulation of the problem and then reformulate it using Dantzig-Wolfe decomposition. We propose a branch-and-price algorithm that works on the reformulation of the problem. Computational results show ...
