Green Scheduling and its Solution


Article Preview

Production scheduling is the key for the enterprise efficiency improvement, and is hot research topic for the advanced manufacturing all the time. Green manufacturing has become the inevitable trend, but environmental protection is ignored in scheduling research and in fact it’s very important. The concept of green scheduling is put forward and the definition of green scheduling is present. The difference between green scheduling and traditional scheduling is contrasted. The environmental effect and the resource consumption are synthetically taken into account, accordingly the index system of green scheduling is constructed and the model of green scheduling is set up. The resolution strategy with two steps is put forward for green scheduling. Pareto optimal solution set is firstly obtained, and then Pareto optimal solutions are evaluated and determined with the standardization and the entropy weight, and the satisfying solution is finally searched out.
