	  abstract     = {There are many real world problems in which
parameters like the arrival time of new jobs, failure of resources, and
completion time of jobs change continuously. This paper tackles the
problem of scheduling jobs with random due dates on multiple
identical machines in a stochastic environment. First to assign jobs to
different machine centers LPT scheduling methods have been used,
after that the particular sequence of jobs to be processed on the
machine have been found using simple stochastic techniques. The
performance parameter under consideration has been the maximum
lateness concerning the stochastic due dates which are independent
and exponentially distributed. At the end a relevant problem has been
solved using the techniques in the paper..},
