Consider an assignment problem in which jobs are to be assigned to machines in such a way as to minimize the total cost of manufacture. In addition, there is, for each job, a queuing cost which is proportional to the time spent before completion. Each job takes a unit length of time to be completed once work is started on it by a machine. It will be shown that this problem may be formulated as a linear program whose optimal solution will be integral.
