Given a set of jobs, with associated processing times, and a set of identical machines, each of which can process at most one job at a time, the Parallel Machine Scheduling Problem is to assign each job to exactly one machine so as to minimize the maximum completion time of a job. The problem is strongly NP-hard, and has been intensively studied since the Sixties.We present a metaheuristic and an exact algorithm, and analyze their average behavior on a large set of test instances from the literature.The metaheuristic algorithm, which is based on a scatter search paradigm, computationally proves to be highly effective, and capable of solving to optimality a very high percentage of the publicly available test instances. The exact algorithm, which is based on a specialized binary search and a branch-and-price scheme, was able to quickly solve to optimality all remaining instances.
