In the current work, a new precedence-based mixed integer linear programming (MILP) scheduling framework, based on a continuous-time representation, is developed for the scheduling in multi-stage batch plants. Advantages and special features of the proposed scheduling model are highlighted through several instances of two base case studies. Results are analyzed and further criticized towards future work.
