Mouzon, Gilles C.,Yildirim , Mehmet B. (2008) . A framework to minimize total energy consumption and total tardiness on a single machine. In Proceedings: 4th Annual Symposium: Graduate Research and Scholarly Projects. Wichita, KS: Wichita State University, p.17-18
A great amount of energy is wasted in industry by machines which stay idle due to underutilization. A way to avoid consuming the wasted energy is to incorporate energy consumption into consideration while making the scheduling decisions which optimize objectives such as total tardiness. In this paper, a framework to solve a multiobjective optimization that minimizes total energy consumption and total tardiness is proposed. After modeling the multiobjective problem, a greedy randomized adaptive search metaheuristic is proposed to obtain an approximate pareto front (non-dominated solutions). Next, Analytic Hierarchial Process is utilized to determine the "best" alternative.
