  abstract =     "Genetic Programming (GP) has achieved success in
                 evolving dispatching rules for job shop scheduling
                 problems, particularly in dynamic environments.
                 However, there is still great potential to improve the
                 performance of GP. One challenge that is yet to be
                 addressed is the huge search space. In this paper, we
                 propose a simple yet effective approach to improve the
                 effectiveness and efficiency of GP. The new approach is
                 based on a newly defined time-invariance property of
                 dispatching rules, which is derived from the idea of
                 translational invariance from machine learning. Then,
                 we develop a new terminal selection scheme to guarantee
                 the time-invariance throughout the GP process. The
                 experimental studies show that by considering the
                 time-invariance, GP can achieve much better rules in a
                 much shorter time.",
