MPM Job-shop under Availability Constraints

Nozha Zribi, Luminița Duță, A. El Kamel
2009 International Journal of Computers Communications & Control  
In this paper, the MPM Job-shop scheduling problem, where the machine maintenance has to be performed within certain time intervals inducing machine unavailability, is studied.  ...  A large part of scheduling literature assumes that machines are available all the time.  ...  The algorithm SuccVertex is in three steps. • Step 1 is an initialization step.  ...

Volume rendering using grid computing for large-scale volume data

Nishihashi Kunihiko, Higaki Toru, Okabe Kenji, Raytchev Bisser, Tamaki Toru, Kaneda Kazufumi
2009 2009 11th IEEE International Conference on Computer-Aided Design and Computer Graphics  
Job-Scheduling is important in grid computing for volume rendering, so we use an obstacle-flag which changes priorities dynamically to manage sub-volume results.  ...  However order is vital when combining results to create a final image.  ...  In the three dimensional case the obstacle-flag has 6 bits and the obscure count has a maximum value three.  ...

Scheduling co-operating stacking cranes with predetermined container sequences

Dirk Briskorn, Panagiotis Angeloudis
2016 Discrete Applied Mathematics  
Crane scheduling in container terminals is known as a difficult optimization problem that has become even more challenging in recent years with the proliferation of multi-gantry automated stacking cranes  ...  Note that the diagonal starting in (0, 0) is connected to one obstacle only since the diagonal passes above three obstacle and one the remaining obstacles is concealed with respect to the diagonal.  ...  Obstacles are divided into three parts. The lower, middle and upper parts correspond to crane 2 moving to row r, operating in r and leaving r, respectively.  ...
