The purpose of the work was to develop a concept of an algorithm which supports the process of scheduling production tasks. The designed algorithm performs a task queue creation process in six steps: selecting a schedule type, declaring a queue length, selecting orders for queue development, loading data, automatic job analysis, and queue and Gantt chart generation, taking a decision on the acceptance of the designed production program. The designed system will use single-attribute priority rules (defined by experts) and multi-attribute rules that can be created by combining single-attribute rules. The concept of an algorithm that supports the process of scheduling production tasks, developed and tested by conducting simulations, can be the basis for developing a computer application supporting decision-making process in a manufacturing or service company.
Key words: task scheduling / priority rules / task queuing algorithm / optimization / scheduling problem
