Research on Multitask Collaborative Scheduling Problem with Heuristic Strategies
According to problems existed in the current farm machinery scheduling process, a new farm machinery scheduling scheme is adopted in this dissertation. The collaborative scheduling model of farm machinery is established and multitask collaborative scheduling algorithm is designed through analyzing the differences between Vehicle Scheduling Problem and agricultural machinery scheduling in the dissertation. Earliest Start Time First and minimal resource allocated capacity first strategies are used in the farm machinery scheduling. The algorithm is useful for the case of machinery owner with sufficient farm machinery. The experiment proves that the collaborative scheduling algorithm is more effective than the serial scheduling algorithm.
