Learning to Dispatch for Job Shop Scheduling via Deep Reinforcement Learning

Meta Review

The reviewers all agree that the paper is above the acceptance threshold. There is novelty in how the paper applies learning to JSSP, and the results are promising. But as Reviewer 4 points out, the paper hasn't shown how the proposed approach trades off solution quality and running time, without which it is difficult to judge whether it is a significant advance over existing techniques. Adding such results will strengthen the paper considerably.
