This paper presents a state-of-the-art survey on multicriteria
scheduling and introduces a definition of a multicriteria scheduling problem. It provides a framework that allows to tackle multicriteria scheduling
problems, according to Decision Aid concepts. This
problem is decomposed into three different problems. The first problem
is about obtaining a model. The second one is how to take criteria
into account and the third one is about solving a scheduling problem. An extension
to an existing notation for scheduling problems is proposed for
multicriteria scheduling problems. Then, basic results from the
literature on multicriteria optimization are presented. These results
are used to build the final scheduling problem to solve. Finally a survey is
presented for one-machine, parallel machines and flowshop
multicriteria scheduling problems.
