This paper discusses MILP-models for meltshop scheduling optimization that can be flexibly adapted to different plant structures. Moreover, the flexibility allows for modeling individual characteristics of parallel equipment, particular processing and changeover times, scarce resources and maintenance requests. A small example illustrates the size and solution time of a typical model instance.
