Abstract:

This paper proposed some corollaries to obtain some performance measures of multipurpose machine from its single machine units. It is well known that multipurpose scheduling problems are NP-Hard. Similarly, increases in the number of machine in scheduling problem induce additional computational complexity and new problems, thus the larger the number of machines in a scheduling problem, the higher the degree of computational complexity involved. Therefore, any attempt to obtain the performance objectives of multiple machine environment scheduling problems from its single machine component will make the problems more amenable to solution and increase the efficiency of any proposed algorithm. This paper proposed some rules that can be used to obtain some performance objectives of multipurpose machine environment from its single machine units. It is concluded that partitioning multipurpose machine scheduling problems to its single machine units scheduling will provide a platform for further research work to propose an optimal algorithm for some multipurpose machine scheduling problems.


Keywords: Multi-purpose, complexity, corrolaies, efficiency, optimal
