This article develops algorithms for a single-resource stochastic appointment sequencing and scheduling problem with waiting time, idle time, and overtime costs. This is a basic stochastic scheduling problem that has been studied in various forms by several previous authors. Applications for this problem cited previously include scheduling of surgeries in an operating room, scheduling of appointments in a clinic, scheduling ships in a port, and scheduling exams in an examination facility. In this article, th
