Abstract

"This thesis explains a productive collaboration framework where companies compete and collaborate simultaneously in an auction based virtual marketplace. The thesis describes the control center of each company in this environment and proposes algorithms for the Scheduler and Estimator agents in this framework. A job shop scheduling heuristic algorithm for varying reward structures is proposed, which is an indexing algorithm that schedules tasks for each time unit, using dynamic allocation indices and binary integer programming"--Abstract, leaf iii.
