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.
