This is a Computer-Aided Learning web site for the purposes of teaching and providing the information about
the topic of Short-Term Scheduling.
Scheduling is one of the four plannings used
to schedule the manufacturing process of organizations. It is considered as short-term
planning because it is scheduled only for the purpose of meeting a particular requirement.
Since the requirements of the customers might be different from one another, so the
techniques adopted or the way of manufacturing the products are expected to be changed for
Basically, there are two main types of
Short-Term Scheduling, namely Work
Centre Loading and Job Sequencing. Work Centre Loading is the assignment of the jobs to work or
processing centres. And Input-Output
Control and Gantt Chart are the two main
techniques adopted in this type.
Job Sequencing is the arrangement of the tasks
required to be carried out sequentially. Hence the two techniques, called Priority Rules and Johnson's
Rule are introduced on this web
site. Examples, model answers and simulation tutorials are included into
the four techniques in the hope that it could help you learn more easily.
Finally, I hope that this web site could help
you to understand the topic of Short-Term Scheduling and also the techniques involved.
