This paper addresses the problem of optimally inserting idle time into a single-machine schedule when the sequence is fixed and the cost of each job is a convex function of its completion time. We propose a pseudo-polynomial time algorithm to find a solution within some tolerance of optimality in the solution space. The proposed algorithm generalises(More)
