We have developed many efficient algorithms in scheduling applying to real manufacturing problems.  Our recent book “Optimization and Management in Manufacturing Engineering” received excellent reviews in the Journal of Global Optimization and the Journal of Optimization Methods and Software (written by J. Birge and I. Grossmann respectively - both members of the National Academy of Engineering).
