Daily Concept Booster Mechanical Engineering: Sequencing


In sequencing, our aim is to find the order in which different job are to be processed on different machine so that the idle time is minimized and utilization is optimized.


  • There is one job on one machine at a time
  • If a job is started on any machine, it must be completed
  • The time taken by the job from machine one to another is negligible.
  • Irrespective of order, the processing time for the job remains constant.
