Sanmarti, T. Holczinger, L. Puigjaner, F. Friedler,

Combinatorial Framework for Effective Scheduling of Multipurpose Batch
Plants, AIChE Journal, **48**, 2557 (2002)

This home-page is established by the authors of the paper to provide
demonstartion programs of the algorithms published in the paper. These
programs can be downloaded freely and, therefore, we hope they will be
useful for all who are interested in batch process scheduling. We are
looking forward to receiving your comments (contact information at
the bottom of the page)

## 1. Demonstration program for the basic algorithm and the input files

Demonstration program for the basic algorithm (see Figures 14, 15,
and 16): scheduling.exe

Input file for Example 2 (see Figure 11): example2.sch

Input file for Example 3 (see Table 1):

Example 3 with 4 batches: example3_4batches.sch
Example 3 with 5 batches: example3_5batches.sch
Example 3 with 6 batches: example3_6batches.sch
Example 3 with 7 batches: example3_7batches.sch
Example 3 with 8 batches: example3_8batches.sch
Input file for Example 4 (see Table 3 and 4): example4.sch

Note: these examples can be modified or new examples can be
introduced for further examination of the algorithms.

## 2. Demonstration program for the combinatorially accelerated
algorithm and the input file of the case study

Zipped file acceldemo.zip including

case_study.xls (input file of the Case Study given in Tables 5, 6
and 7)
SCH.exe (demonstration program for the combinatorially accelerated
algorithm)

Note: this program is available just to illustrate the speed in
solving a complex industrial problem. Only graphical output is
generated.
