Batch process plays an important role in chemical engineering industry as multiproduct operations can be done by reusing shared equipment. In order to optimize its utilization, scheduling of batch processes are practised in the industry to achieve the desired production quality using the shortest process time (makespan). One of the state-of-the-art scheduling approaches is the application of simplitied matrix modelling from sophisticated time algorithms. However, this method does not address the realistic scenario of fluctuating product demand from clients. In this work, matrix-based batch scheduling is fut1her expanded by including demand fluctuation screening for a better planning and decision making by users. An algorithm is introduced and implemented to achieve the multiple objective functions of short makes pan, demand target, and high economic potential simultaneously.
