Lane, R and Evans, S (1995) Solving problems in production scheduling. Computer Integrated Manufacturing Systems, 8. pp. 117-124. ISSN 0951-5240Full text not available from this repository.
Traditionally, production scheduling has been viewed as a problem-solving task that involves a single problem - generation of a suitable schedule. This paper presents an alternative model in which individual difficulties are viewed as problems, and the task is to maintain a suitable schedule by resolving as many of these problems as possible. Decision support software is described that has facilities for defining policies to handle numerous minor problems and complete problem-solving strategies to deal with major problems. The paper then discusses the potential for this style of decision support to improve the performance of human schedulers. © 1995.
