Operations scheduling on a single machine:
Several priority rules are applied for sequencing a given set of jobs on a
single machine. The sequence may be visualized with the help of a Gantt-chart.
||First Come First Served
||shortest processing time
Note: The priority rules
are applied to all jobs, even if a job hasn't yet arrived at the workstation.
If all arrival dates are zero, under the FCFS rule the jobs are ordered with
respect to their index.
