The Classical Job Shop Scheduling Problem (Jsp)
A job shop scheduling problem occupies the determination of beginning time for all operations in a finite and specified set, N. Related along with each operation i ε N there is a processing time p_{i}. The operations in set N are portioned in n equally exclusive and exhaustive subsets J_{k}, here J_{k} is termed as job k. The operations in set N are portioned also into m equally exhaustive and exclusive subsets M_{r}, where M_{r} is the set of operations to be processed upon machine r. Also specified are the precedence associations, and the operations in a job or technological constraints. A pair (i, j), i, j ∈ J_{k}, imply that operation i precedes operation j in job k. Assume that A_{k} = {(i, j) | i, j ∈ J_{k} and I must precede j} indicate the set of pairs that illustrate the technological constraints related with job k. Related with every operation i ∈ N there is a processing time p_{i}. The traditional job shop scheduling problem is to calculating the processing order of the operations in M_{r}, for r = 1, 2, . . . , m, such as several objective function is optimized.
This problem contains finding the vector of operation begin times, t = (_{t1,} t_{2}, . . . , t_{¦N¦}), which minimizes a specified objective function Z (t). The difficulty can be formulated mathematically as given below:
(JSP): Minimize Z (t) Subjected to
t_{i} - 1 t_{j} ≥ p_{j}, (i, j) ∈ A_{k}, k = 1, 2, . . . , n . . . (1)
t_{i} - t_{j} ≥ p_{j} V t_{j} - t_{i} ≥ p_{i}, i, j, ∈ M_{r}, r = 1, 2, . . . , m . . . (2)
t_{i} ≥ 0, i ∈ N. . . . (3)
Eq. (1) makes sure that the technological constraints are satisfied. The disjunctive relation in Eq. (2) makes sure that the ability constraints on the machines are not violated that is a machine can process individual operation at a time. JSP is well identifying that it belongs to a class of the most complicated combinatorial optimization problems and it has been extensively studied.
Usual assumptions made in job shop scheduling comprise the following figure:
A1
Each job needs only one machine at a time, that is M_{r} ∩ M_{s} = φ, r ≠ s.
A2
One job processes by one machine at a time, that is | J_{k} ∩ M_{r} | = 1, k = 1, . . . , n and r = 1, . . . , m. also this shows that a job visits each machine exactly once, that is two operations in similar job cannot use similar machine.
A 3
The order in that a job visits various machines is predetermined via technological constraints, that is the set A = A_{1} ∪ A_{2 }∪ . . . ∪ A_{n}, is specified and fixed. A_{k} can be seemed like the machine routing or process plan for job k.
A4
No explicit consideration is specified to auxiliary resources as like: material handling, buffer space and tooling.

These assumptions are suitable for manufacturing environments that is, which human intervention is important and the equipment utilized is hard automation or manual. This is also suitable in environments characterized via batch production, in that every part type has a fixed and determined process plan. A specified workstation or machine is pre- assigned to execute each step in the process plan.
