A genetic algorithm is used to calculate production schedules for a specific type of batch-mode manufacturing process. Previous scheduling efforts included both time discretised MILP as well as continuous-time MILP, both of which were outperformed by the GA when measured in calculation times and final schedule accuracy. The approach is two-folded and an algorithm to reproduce it on similar processes is presented.
