Minimizing Flow-Time Variance on a Single Machine
MetadataShow full item record
For my Senior Individualized Project, I worked for the Mathematics and Science Department at GMI Engineering and Management Institute in Flint, Michigan. I worked with Dr. s. Chakravarthy, a teacher at the school, Who needed a student to work with him on some problems he was trying to solve in Probability and Statistics. As I had never before been exposed to this field, I also took a course in Probability and Statistics while I was there. The first problem which I had been assigned to work on was a particular type of sequencing problem. A sequencing problem may be defined as a problem which occurs whenever there is a group of jobs which must be arranged in some sort of order.
