DYNAMIC SCHEDULING OF DESIGNTASKS IN CONCURRENTENGINEERING
Huang Hongzhong Li Li Liu Wei (Dalian University of Technology)
In the environment of concurrent engineering, for the sake of reducing the time of design under the restriction of resources, it is necessary to schedule design activity efficiently. During the design process, there are so many uncertain factors, which result in the change of design activities dynamically. In order to optimize the design task scheduling and make adequate use of resources in concurrent engineering, firstly the priorities of tasks are computed according to the sequence of tasks, the difficulty of tasks and the time task needs. Then based on the priorities and the restriction of resources, a dynamic scheduling method with the object of the shortest project implementing time is proposed. During the performance of the method, tasks may be added or deleted dynamically. An example is given to illustrate the method at last.
