Abstract: Deteriorating jobs scheduling problems have been extensively studied in recent years. However, it is assumed that there is a common goal to minimize for all jobs in most of the research. In many management situations, multiple agents compete on the usage of a common processing resource. In this paper, we considered a single-machine scheduling problem with a linear deterioration assumption where the objective is to minimize the total weighted completion time of jobs from the first agent with the restriction that no tardy job is allowed for the second agent. We proposed a branch-and-bound algorithm and three heuristic algorithms to search for the optimal solution and near-optimal solutions, respectively. A computational experiment was conducted to evaluate the performance of the proposed algorithms.
