In Supply chain (SC) environments, schedules inevitably experience various unexpected disruptions. In these cases, rescheduling is essential to minimise the negative impact on the performance of the system. In this study, a hybrid rescheduling technique is developed for solving coordinated manufacturing tasks scheduling problems with due date changes and machine breakdowns. According to the dynamic features of this problem, a strategy combined with event and periodic driven methods is proposed to improve the stability and robustness of manufacturing performance in a coordinated SC. Moreover, an application case is introduced to test and evaluate the effect of different initialisations in two types of disruption scenarios. The experimental results show that the proposed rescheduling technique has good effectiveness and efficiency in the coordinated manufacturing environment.
