Dispatching rules play an important role especially in semiconductor manufacturing scheduling, because these fabrication facilities are characterized by high complexity and dynamics. The process of developing and adapting dispatching rules is currently a tedious, largely manual task. Coupling Genetic Programming (GP), a global optimization meta-heuristic from the family of Evolutionary Algorithms, with a stochastic discrete event simulation of a complex manufacturing system we are able to automatically generate dispatching rules for a scenario from semiconductor manufacturing. Evolved dispatching rules clearly outperform manually developed rules from literature.
