# Scheduling in a Sequence Dependent Setup Environment with Genetic Search

### Abstract

Work on scheduling in the presence of squence dependent setup times has generally focused on minimizing the total setup time (or cost) or minimizing the makespan of a set of jobs. We explore the problem of sequencing to minimize the total tardiness of a set of jobs in a single-stage process where setup times are sequence dependent. In particular, we examine the efficacy of using genetic search to develop near optimal schedules in this environment.
