2015 Journal of Military and Information Science  
This study considers a single-machine scheduling problem where the objective is to maximize total profit (Prmax). The problem is identified as 1 ││ Prmax. The aim of this study is to develop a profit-based scheduling model using agent-based architecture in order to increase profitability of a single machine manufacturing systems. All objective functions in the literature are based on manufacturing cost. This study shows a new profit based approach to solve single machine scheduling problems.
