Data Mining for Production Scheduling
Data mining is a fast growing field and many industrial engineering applications generate large amounts of data to which data mining techniques can be applied. In this paper we develop a data mining framework for production scheduling. This involves preprocessing of historic schedules into an appropriate data file, discovery of key scheduling concepts, and representation of the data mining results in a way that enables its use for job scheduling.
