Pereira, J., & Vasquez, O. C. (2017). The single machine weighted mean squared deviation problem. Eur. J. Oper. Res., 261(2), 515–529.
Abstract: This paper studies a single machine problem related to the just-In-Time (JIT) production objective in which the goal is to minimize the sum of weighted mean squared deviation of the completion times with respect to a common due date. In order to solve the problem, several structural and dominance properties of the optimal solution are investigated. These properties are then integrated within a branch and-cut approach to solve a time-indexed formulation of the problem. The results of a computational experiment with the proposed algorithm show that the method is able to optimally solve instances with up to 300 jobs within reduced running times, improving other integer programming approaches.
