Abstract : Interactive scheduling procedures for job shop problems are appealing because current scheduling techniques cannot deal with the problem in its full complexity. The report presents an interactive model which builds on a multi-pass heuristic scheduling procedure for the due-date problem. The program allows a human scheduler to interact to improve schedules and modify problem descriptions in an attempt to arrive at a satisfactory solution. A discussion of the model's capabilities and detailed operating procedures are contained in the report. (Author)
