  abstract =     "Dispatching rules play an important role especially in
                 semiconductor manufacturing scheduling, because these
                 fabrication facilities are characterised by high
                 complexity and dynamics. The process of developing and
                 adapting dispatching rules is currently a tedious,
                 largely manual task. Coupling Genetic Programming (GP),
                 a global optimisation meta-heuristic from the family of
                 Evolutionary Algorithms, with a stochastic discrete
                 event simulation of a complex manufacturing system we
                 are able to automatically generate dispatching rules
                 for a scenario from semiconductor manufacturing.
                 Evolved dispatching rules clearly outperform manually
                 developed rules from literature.",
