An integrated coordination scheduling problem considering production and distribution in integrated energy enterprise aims at coordinating the production plan and distribution plans to eliminate the conflict between them. The research is motivated by the challenges encountered in the practice. Practice has indicated that conflicts are common existing among the plans which are made by production and distribution departments respectively. We propose a scheduling model which considers two aspects. On one hand, we try to maximize the company profit. On the other hand, we expect to minimize the difference between the separate plans and the coordinating ones. A genetic algorithm is developed to solve this problem. A case study of the largest integrated energy enterprise in China shows that once conflicts occurs in separate plans, the most effective way to adjust the separate plans from a global perspective that has strong coordinating relationships with the overall interests. The proposed model would neutralize the influence of the conflict.
