This paper addresses a bi-criteria two-machine flowshop scheduling problem when the learning effect is present. The objective is to find a sequence that minimizes a weighted sum of the total completion time and the maximum tardiness. In this article, a branch-and-bound method, incorporating several dominance properties and a lower bound, is presented to(More)
In this paper we introduce a new scheduling model with learning effects in which the actual processing time of a job is a function of the total normal processing times of the jobs already processed and of the job's scheduled position. We show that the single-machine problems to minimize makespan and total completion time are polynomially solvable. In(More)
