This article considers the single-machine serial-batching scheduling problem with a machine availability constraint, position-dependent processing time, and time-dependent set-up time. The objective of this problem is to make the decision of batching jobs and sequencing batches to minimize the makespan. To solve the problem, three cases of machine non-availability periods are considered, and the structural properties of the optimal solution are derived for each case. Based on these structural properties, an optimization algorithm is developed and an example is proposed to illustrate this algorithm.
