Abstract: This paper seeks to determine a dynamic Pareto-optimal method for a single machine scheduling based on two criteria simultaneously: setup expenditure criterion and average orders utility criterion. Series-batch and parallel-batch problems with sequence-dependent setup times are considered. In this method the concept of production intensity as dynamic production process parameter is used. A set of applied software allows scheduling for middle quantity of jobs. The result of software application is the set of non-dominant versions proposed to a user for making a final choice.
Keywords: group scheduling; production intensity; series batches; parallel batches; Pareto optimality; single machine scheduling; sequence-dependent setup times.
