    A Novel Scheduling Framework for Multi-Programming Quantum Computing in Cloud Environment

    Danyang Zheng, Jinchen Xv, Feng Yue, Qiming Du, Zhiheng Wang, Zheng Shan*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.2, pp. 1957-1974, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.048956

    Abstract As cloud quantum computing gains broader acceptance, a growing quantity of researchers are directing their focus towards this domain. Nevertheless, the rapid surge in demand for cloud-based quantum computing resources has led to a scarcity, which in turn hampers users from achieving optimal satisfaction. Therefore, cloud quantum computing service providers require a unified analysis and scheduling framework for their quantum resources and user jobs to meet the ever-growing usage demands. This paper introduces a new multi-programming scheduling framework for quantum computing in a cloud environment. The framework addresses the issue of limited quantum computing resources More >

    Abstract Distributed photovoltaic (PV) is one of the important power sources for building a new power system with new energy as the main body. The rapid development of distributed PV has brought new challenges to the operation of distribution networks. In order to improve the absorption ability of large-scale distributed PV access to the distribution network, the AC/DC hybrid distribution network is constructed based on flexible interconnection technology, and a coordinated scheduling strategy model of hydrogen energy storage (HS) and distributed PV is established. Firstly, the mathematical model of distributed PV and HS system is established,… More >

    An Elite-Class Teaching-Learning-Based Optimization for Reentrant Hybrid Flow Shop Scheduling with Bottleneck Stage

    Deming Lei, Surui Duan, Mingbo Li*, Jing Wang

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 47-63, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.049481

    Abstract Bottleneck stage and reentrance often exist in real-life manufacturing processes; however, the previous research rarely addresses these two processing conditions in a scheduling problem. In this study, a reentrant hybrid flow shop scheduling problem (RHFSP) with a bottleneck stage is considered, and an elite-class teaching-learning-based optimization (ETLBO) algorithm is proposed to minimize maximum completion time. To produce high-quality solutions, teachers are divided into formal ones and substitute ones, and multiple classes are formed. The teacher phase is composed of teacher competition and teacher teaching. The learner phase is replaced with a reinforcement search of the More >

    A Layered Energy-Efficient Multi-Node Scheduling Mechanism for Large-Scale WSN

    Xue Zhao, Shaojun Tao, Hongying Tang, Jiang Wang*, Baoqing Li*

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 1335-1351, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047996

    Abstract In recent years, target tracking has been considered one of the most important applications of wireless sensor network (WSN). Optimizing target tracking performance and prolonging network lifetime are two equally critical objectives in this scenario. The existing mechanisms still have weaknesses in balancing the two demands. The proposed heuristic multi-node collaborative scheduling mechanism (HMNCS) comprises cluster head (CH) election, pre-selection, and task set selection mechanisms, where the latter two kinds of selections form a two-layer selection mechanism. The CH election innovatively introduces the movement trend of the target and establishes a scoring mechanism to determine More >

    Collaborative Charging Scheduling in Wireless Charging Sensor Networks

    Qiuyang Wang, Zhen Xu*, Lei Yang

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.79, No.1, pp. 1613-1630, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2024.047915

    Abstract Wireless sensor networks (WSNs) have the trouble of limited battery power, and wireless charging provides a promising solution to this problem, which is not easily affected by the external environment. In this paper, we study the recharging of sensors in wireless rechargeable sensor networks (WRSNs) by scheduling two mobile chargers (MCs) to collaboratively charge sensors. We first formulate a novel sensor charging scheduling problem with the objective of maximizing the number of surviving sensors, and further propose a collaborative charging scheduling algorithm (CCSA) for WRSNs. In the scheme, the sensors are divided into important sensors More >

    Optimal Scheduling of Multiple Rail Cranes in Rail Stations with Interference Crane Areas

    Nguyen Vu Anh Duy, Nguyen Le Thai, Nguyen Huu Tho*

    Intelligent Automation & Soft Computing, Vol.39, No.1, pp. 15-31, 2024, DOI:10.32604/iasc.2024.038272

    Abstract In this paper, we consider a multi-crane scheduling problem in rail stations because their operations directly influence the throughput of the rail stations. In particular, the job is not only assigned to cranes but also the job sequencing is implemented for each crane to minimize the makespan of cranes. A dual cycle of cranes is used to minimize the number of working cycles of cranes. The rail crane scheduling problems in this study are based on the movement of containers. We consider not only the gantry moves, but also the trolley moves as well as More >

    Abstract Cloud computing provides a diverse and adaptable resource pool over the internet, allowing users to tap into various resources as needed. It has been seen as a robust solution to relevant challenges. A significant delay can hamper the performance of IoT-enabled cloud platforms. However, efficient task scheduling can lower the cloud infrastructure’s energy consumption, thus maximizing the service provider’s revenue by decreasing user job processing times. The proposed Modified Chimp-Whale Optimization Algorithm called Modified Chimp-Whale Optimization Algorithm (MCWOA), combines elements of the Chimp Optimization Algorithm (COA) and the Whale Optimization Algorithm (WOA). To enhance MCWOA’s… More >

    An Improved Harris Hawk Optimization Algorithm for Flexible Job Shop Scheduling Problem

    Zhaolin Lv1, Yuexia Zhao2, Hongyue Kang3,*, Zhenyu Gao3, Yuhang Qin4

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.2, pp. 2337-2360, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.045826

    Abstract Flexible job shop scheduling problem (FJSP) is the core decision-making problem of intelligent manufacturing production management. The Harris hawk optimization (HHO) algorithm, as a typical metaheuristic algorithm, has been widely employed to solve scheduling problems. However, HHO suffers from premature convergence when solving NP-hard problems. Therefore, this paper proposes an improved HHO algorithm (GNHHO) to solve the FJSP. GNHHO introduces an elitism strategy, a chaotic mechanism, a nonlinear escaping energy update strategy, and a Gaussian random walk strategy to prevent premature convergence. A flexible job shop scheduling model is constructed, and the static and dynamic… More >

    CMC-Computers, Materials & Continua, Vol.78, No.1, pp. 811-843, 2024, DOI:10.32604/cmc.2023.046040

    Abstract To improve the productivity, the resource utilization and reduce the production cost of flexible job shops, this paper designs an improved two-layer optimization algorithm for the dual-resource scheduling optimization problem of flexible job shop considering workpiece batching.
