Abstract

We consider scheduling problems with learning/deterioration effects and time-dependent processing times on a single machine, with or without due date assignment considerations. By reducing them to a special assignment problem on product matrices, we solve all these problems in near-linear time. This improves the time complexity of previous algorithms for some scheduling problems and establishes the fast polynomial solvability for several other problems.
