Abstract:A problem of n independent jobs with different ready times and due dates to be scheduled on m parallel machines which aimed at minimizing the total tardiness penalties is considered. The decomposition and combination characteristics of the problem are studied. Based on the two characteristics a client/server based parallel calculation mode is designed, in which the server and client are responsible for the search of the global and local optimality, respectively. Following this mode, a parallel genetic algorithm which is composed of two cooperative processes assignment and ordering is developed. The experimental results are compared to an adapted algorithm to show the more prominent performances of the proposed algorithm.
