What is total elapsed time in operations research?
Also, how do you find the minimum elapsed time?
The minimum total elapsed time is calculated for this job sequence. The total elapsed time is given as Total Elapsed Time = Time between starting the first job in the optimum sequence on machine 1 and completing the last job in the optimum sequence on machine M. The minimum total elapsed time thus obtained is 61 hours.
Subsequently, question is, what do you mean by job sequencing? Sequencing can be defined as the selection of an order for a series of jobs to be done on a number of service facilities (machine). The purpose of sequencing problems is to complete the job within the minimum possible time, keeping the minimum idle time of the machines (or services).
In this regard, what is sequencing in operations research?
Sequencing problems in Operations Research. It is the selection of an appropriate order in which a number of jobs (Operations) can be assigned to to a finite number of service facilities (Machines or equipments) so as to optimize the outputs in terms of time, cost or profit.
What is the difference between scheduling and sequencing?
Sequencing is the order of tasks to be done in chain. Hence the next task is started once the previous one is completed. Scheduling, on the other hand is the process in which people are assigned to time to accomplish different tasks. It improves the delivery performance and reduces the manufacturing time and cost.
