A systematic scheduling method is required to modify the predetermined production schedules in order to cope with unforeseen changes in manufacturing systems. The objective of the present research is to propose a scheduling method based on GA (Genetic Algorithm) for modifying delayed production schedules due to the additional jobs, reactively. A prototype of reactive scheduling system is developed and applied to scheduling problems. The effectiveness of the proposed method is verified through the numerical expreriments of the reactive scheduling problems.
