  • A single machine scheduling problem with batch delivery is studied in this paper. The objective is to minimize the total cost which comprises earliness penalties, tardiness penalties, holding and transportation costs. An integer programming model is proposed and two dominance properties are obtained. However, sometimes due to the lack of historical data, the worker evaluates the processing time of a job according to his past experience. A pessimistic value model of the single machine scheduling problem with batch delivery under an uncertain environment is presented. Since the objective function is non-monotonic with respect to uncertain variables, a hybrid algorithm based on uncertain simulation and a g#enetic algorithm (GA) is designed to solve the model. In addition, two dominance properties under the uncertain environment are also obtained. Finally, computational experiments are presented to illustrate the modeling idea and the effectiveness of the algorithm.
