Production scheduling in paper mills Production scheduling in paper machines is a complex task, because of great variety of production grades, huge amount of orders and a big number of objectives and constraints. This happens especially in fine paper mills. Scheduling should aim at customer expectations, to maximise profit and guarantee efficient use of machinery.
