This paper investigates thenotion of preemption in scheduling,with earliness and tardiness penalties. Starting from the observation that the classical cost model where penalties only depend on completion times does not capture the just-in-time philosophy, we introduce a new model where the earliness costs depend on the start times of the jobs. To solve this(More)
We use the Akers-Friedman geometric approach to solve the two jobs job-shop problem when there is an earliness cost on the first operation and a tardiness cost on the last operation of each job. We then generalize the problem by imposing earliness and tardiness costs on each operation and finally, we solve it using a dynamic programming algorithm.(More)
