This paper presents a new approach of differential evolution to scheduling optimization problem. The developed approach is viewed as an enhanced varient of differential   evolution,        incorporation   new      child correction schemas and coversion schemas from differential to discrete domain. The heuristic is extensively evaluated with the scheduling problem of flow shop and compared with published results.
