    7). Consider the following data on jobs waiting to be scheduled on two machines in serial.

    Proc Time
    Job Machine 1 Machine 2
    A 5 8
    B 3 9
    C 8 7
    D 7 2
    E 4 6

    Using Johnson's Rule to sequence the jobs, what would be the correct sequence for processing the jobs?

    11) Consider the following data on jobs waiting to be scheduled on two machines in serial.
    Proc Time
    Job Machine 1 Machine 2
    A 5 2
    B 9 3
    C 8 7
    D 5 4
    E 9 6

    These jobs are sequenced by a scheduler in the following order: C E D B A. What will be the total flowtime (or makespan) for all of the jobs to be processed on both machines (from start of first job on first machine until completion of last job on second machine)?

    Step 3 Repeat Steps 2 and 3 until all jobs are scheduled.

    SPT= 2 days for Job D . This is on machine 2 . Schedule D as the last job. ...
