Priority rules guide the order in which jobs should be processed. The earliest due date method (EDDM), first come, first served method (FCFSM), longest processing time method (LPTM), and shortage processing time method (SPTM) are the most common priority rules for sequencing jobs. Different priority rules give different orders of processing jobs. This research proposed an innovative metaheuristic method called the Harmony search algorithm (HSA) and compared it to traditional priority rules. A set of five criteria were considered to evaluate the best priority method. An installation lift company employed the computational simulation. A set of simulation experiments showed that HSA outperformed the traditional priority rules regarding average completion time and utilization.
