Paper Abstract

In this paper, we consider some stochastic scheduling problems with a set of stochastic jobs on a manufacturing system with a single machine that is subject to multiple breakdowns and repairs. When the machine processing a job fails, the job processing must restart some time later when the machine is repaired. For this typical manufacturing system, we find the optimal policies that minimize the following objective functions: (1) the weighed sum of the completion times; (2) the weighed number of late jobs having constant due dates; (3) the weighted number of late jobs having random due dates exponentially distributed, which generalize some previous results.
