This paper focuses on the heuristic hybridization and the genetic search as a methodology to develop a computationally efficient heuristic for the job-shop scheduling problem (JSP). In order to adapt the JSP to a genetic algorithm (GA), the ASGPL (Active-Schedule Generation with a Priority-List) algorithm with a hopping scheme was proposed, and using a GA, an iterative schedule improvement procedure called EVIS (Evolutionary Intracell Scheduler) was designed. The genetic search in EVIS was parallelized with a model of subpopulations and migration. Without implementing any problem-tailored heuristic for the job-shop scheduling problem, EVIS was able to find optimal solutions to a number of different problem instances in reasonable computation time
