OYETUNJI, E. O.  and  OLULEYE, A. E.. New heuristics for minimising total completion time and the number of tardy jobs criteria on a single machine with release time. S. Afr. J. Ind. Eng. [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.2, pp.101-114. ISSN 2224-7890.

This paper considers the bi-criteria scheduling problem of simultaneously minimising the total completion time and the number of tardy jobs with release dates on a single machine. Since the problem had been classified as Np-Hard, two heuristics (HR9 and HR10) were proposed for solving this problem. Performance evaluations of the proposed heuristics and selected solution methods (HR7 and BB) from the literature were carried out on 1,100 randomly generated problems ranging from 3 to 500 jobs. Experiment results show that HR7 outperformed HR10 when the number of jobs (n) is less than 30, while HR10 outperformed HR7 for n≥ 30.
