Framework for the performance assessment of the shifting bottleneck heuristic for complex job shops
In this paper, we show the architectural concept that was used to integrate the FORCe scheduler into a commercial factory simulation software package. Instead of using the simulator's data structures directly, we implemented a factory data image that is updated by the simulator. This data image is then used by the schedule to perform its computations. Due to this approach, the scheduler can easily be separated from the simulator if a stand-alone software module is equired.
