The method to find the optimal schedule is decomposed into three steps:
1) aggregate blocks into pushbacks, panels and blend bins to reduce the problem size;
2) express the scheduling problem into a linear system that can be solved through linear programing and uses an iterative approach to finding an optimal schedule; and
3) iterate semi-randomly through the solution space to ensure the schedule obtained is close to the optimal solution.
