The pharmaceutical industry plays an important role in the nation’s economy and society since pharmaceutical products are one of the factors that affect people’s lives and their health. At present, the domestic pharmaceutical industry is developing and adapting to meet the needs of customers and is also very competitive. Therefore, each stage of the production process must be as efficient as possible to achieve competitive advantages without compromising the product quality. One important process in production is pharmaceutical product stability testing, which ensures that the products have the necessary quality, efficacy, and safety. Managing time in a way that maximizes the efficiency of limited staff and testing equipment is one of many challenges. This research demonstrates efficient job scheduling for staff and testing equipment using mathematical formulae and IBM ILOG CPLEX Optimization Studio (CPLEX), which is a set of tools to help model and solve optimization problems. The result will be a job schedule for pharmaceutical product stability testing which includes the start and end date, which is a way of managing time for available resources as efficiently as possible.
