This paper provides a classification of real scheduling problems. Various ways have been examined and described on the problem. Scheduling problem faces a tremendous challenges and difficulties in order to meet the preferences of the consumer. Constructing the scheduling problem is comp licated, inefficient and time -consuming. This study aims to develop mathematical model for scheduling the operation theater during peak and off peak time . Scheduling problem is a well known optimization problem and the goal is to find the b est possible optimal solution. In this paper we used linear programming model for scheduling problem in high level of synthesis. An additional to time constrained scheduling and resource constrained scheduling. An optimal result was fully obtained by using software called GLPK/AMPL. Th is model can be adopted to solve other scheduling problem such as for the Lecture Theater, Cinemas and Work Sh ift.
