Along with the development of economic globalization, multi-site production and supply chain integration are not uncommon nowadays. The distributed shop scheduling, which enhances system reliability and utilization of resources through effective allocation of processes and collaboration among multi-sites or supply chains, has attracted the interest of many researchers and practitioners from a variety of disciplines, such as computer science, economics, manufacturing, and service operations management. Intelligent optimization algorithms including genetic algorithm, particle swarm optimization, differential evolution, ant colony optimization, estimation of distribution, artificial bee colony, iterated greedy, iterated local search, taboo search, and many others, have been successfully applied to a variety of distributed scheduling problems as well as the practical systems. This special issue aims to establish a forum for the discussion of recent progresses on the advanced intelligent optimization method for distribution shop scheduling problems. This special issue will publish original research, review and application papers including but not limited to the following fields:

  • Distributed flowshop scheduling
  • Distributed job shop scheduling
  • Distributed parallel machine scheduling
  • Distributed assembly scheduling
  • Distributed flexible manufacturing scheduling
  • Distributed project scheduling
  • Distributed maintenance scheduling
  • Distributed operating room scheduling
  • Distributed energy resources scheduling
  • Distributed vehicle routing problems
  • Distributed multi-objective scheduling
  • Distributed rescheduling
  • Distributed robust scheduling
  • Real-time distributed scheduling
  • Distributed scheduling problems in logistics
  • Distributed planning and scheduling in supply chains
  • Distributed Scheduling in transport, sports, healthcare, engineering, energy management, etc.
  • Other Related Topics
