dc.description.abstract In this thesis we have presented a mathematical model of a scheduling problem which arises in the Brewing Industry. We have implemented two different types of global optimization algorithms to find the global minimum of the problem. Several instances of the scheduling problem are considered and the results thereof are presented. The results show that significant savings can be made if the global optimization techniques are used in brewery Industry. en
