The early theoretical models of practical machine scheduling and sequencing problems and their mathematical analysis were motivated mostly by problems arising in manufacturing and service industries. Later models have also been influenced by new developments in flexible manufacturing, computer systems and communication systems. Analogous problems arise, however, almost everywhere, and the number of various problem types is practically unlimited. Nevertheless, the resulting mathematical and computational problems often have the form of the following optimization problem: Given a finite number of jobs to be processed on a finite number of machines, find a feasible schedule that minimizes the value of a given objective function.
