Lot Streaming Lot Streaming Lot streaming is a term used to describe the splitting of a job or lot into sublots or transfer batches so that simultaneous processing of the sublots on different machines can be achieved.

Objective Objective Basic Decisions: Number of sublots Size of each sublot The objective is minimizing the makespan, i.e., the time the last sublot leaves the last machine. It is assumed that a lot goes through a series of m machines. In order to reduce the makespan, lot splitting is considered. Once the last sublot completes its operation on machine m, the lot is then reconfigured and sent to another place as a complete lot.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
