Paper entitled “Makespan Minimization with Sequence-dependent Non-overlapping Setups” by Marek Vlk, Antonin Novak, and Zdenek Hanzalek has won the Best Student Paper Award at the International Conference on Operations Research and Enterprise Systems (ICORES 2019 http://www.icores.org). It deals with a scheduling problem that emerges in the production of water tubes of different sizes that require reconfiguration of the machines. The proposed novel solution is a hybrid heuristic LOFAS leveraging the strengths of two formalisms to solve discrete optimization problems: Integer Linear Programming and Constraint Programming. The proposed method attains high-quality solutions for instances with up to 5800 tasks. Industrial Informatics Department presented two scheduling papers at ICORES 2019.
