- using parameters in the optimization function
- if-then-else statement

Jobs are subject to precedence constraints and have specified processing times. Moreover, for each job the labour requirement varies as the job is processed. Given the amount of labour available in each period, the problem is to finish all the jobs as soon as possible, that is, to minimize the makespan, subject to the precedence and labour constraints. An instance of LCSP is determined by a set N={1,...,n} of jobs, the processing time P(j) and labour profile L[j,1], ..., L[j,p(j)] of each job j in N, and a digraph D=(N,A) representing the precedence constraints between jobs. An amount L of labour is available in each period. Furthermore, in the particular instance considered here the jobs are grouped into job types with similar processing times and labour requirements. | |||||||||||
