A scheduling problem can be considered to be an exercise in finding an appropriate timetable for the processing of jobs, by machines, such that some performance measure achieves its optimal value. Within this definition, it can be seen that there are two aspects to be considered concurrently, the satisfaction of constraints (e.g. availability of resources) and the optimisation of objectives (e.g. flow-times).
