ABSTRACT
This article describes a feasible approach to solve large-scale and real-world scheduling problems. Assuming that a problem can be divided into several subproblems, our approach applies different optimization methods to different classes of subproblems. This fundamental idea is realized in a scheduling problem solver that provides a variety of useful optimization methods, including rule-base systems and genetic algorithms. To show the solver's feasibility, we applied it to a scheduling problem that occurs in the steelmaking process. Finally, we discuss some future directions of the solver.
