Abstract: We consider in this paper the two-machine no-wait flowshop problem in which each machine may have an unavailable interval. We present [3/2]-approximation algorithms for the problem when the unavailable interval is imposed on only one machine, or the unavailable intervals on the two machines overlap. These algorithms improve on existing results.
