A Scheduling Application to a Molding Injection Machine: A Challenge Addressed on the 109th European Study Group with Industry
This paper addresses a scheduling optimization problem applied to a molding injection machine. This optimization problem was posed as a challenge to the mathematical community present at the 109th European Study Group with Industry (ESGI), held in Portugal in 2015. We propose a mathematical model for the scheduling optimization problem, which was coded in a widely known modeling language. The model is validated through a set of numerical results obtained with a state-of-the-art solver.
