Dynamic scheduling rules for a multiproduct make-to-stock queue

Journal Article

This paper develops a simple but effective heuristic policy for a stochastic production-inventory system, where several products share a single processor of limited capacity. Our policy combines the best features, and avoids the weaknesses, of prior approaches in the literature. Limited numerical tests suggest that the method performs well.
