\$title LogMIP User's Manual Example 1a - Job Scheduling (LOGMIP1A,SEQ=332) \$onText Three jobs (A,B,C) must be executed sequentially in three steps, but not all jobs require all the stages. The objective is to obtain the sequence of tasks which minimizes the completion time. Once a job has started it cannot be interrupted. The objective is to obtain the sequence of task, which minimizes the completion time. Ref: Raman & Grossmann, Comp. & Chem. Eng., 18, 7, p.563-578, 1994.
