We consider the job shop scheduling problem with fuzzy durations and expected makespan minimisation. We formally define the space of semi-active and active fuzzy schedules and propose and analyse different schedule-generation schemes (SGSs) in this fuzzy framework. In particular, we study dominance properties of the set of schedules obtained with each SGS. Finally, a computational study illustrates the great difference between the spaces of active and the semi-active fuzzy schedules, an analogous behaviour to that of the deterministic job shop.
