Operations Scheduling
Operations Scheduling becomes essential whenever different types of resources in a system have to be allotted or arranged for the required services to be performed on the customers waiting in the system (also see CC/ECO1 and MM/AS4). The customers may be external or internal (also see MM/M1 and MM/M8). Scheduling buses for routes, machines for jobs, ships for berthing, men for facilities or classroom and equipment lies in this domain (also see CC/QM4 and CC/QM5). The depth of this lesson, by Prof. T S Nagabhushana of IIMB, is restricted to scheduling on the shop fl oor. ‘Machine Loading’, ‘Scheduling Criteria’, ‘Priority Rules’, ‘Job Routing’, ‘Job Sequencing’, ‘Gantt Charts’, ‘Despatching and Expediting’, are all studied through neat illustrations. The dynamics of a fl ow shop come alive in this lesson.
