An efficient algorithm for a job shop problem Academic Article uri icon


  • We study the problem of minimizing makespan in a two-machine job shop with unit processing time operations. An efficient algorithm with respect to a succinct encoding of the problem instances is proposed. The algorithm is an improvement of earlier algorithms proposed for the problem by Brucker [1,2], Hefetz and Adiri [7], and Timkovskiy [15]. The idea behind the algorithm has the potential of extension to job shops with parallel machines. 1995 J.C. Baltzer AG, Science Publishers.
