Scheduling with limited machine availability.

*(English)*Zbl 0959.90023Summary: This paper reviews results related to deterministic scheduling problems where machines are not continuously available for processing. There might be incomplete information about the points of time machines change availability. The complexity of single and multi machine problems is analyzed considering criteria on completion times and due dates. The review mainly covers intractability results, polynomial optimization and approximation algorithms. In some places two results from enumerative algorithms and heuristics are surveyed.
