A result in a recent paper reported by Zhang et al. (Int J Adv Manuf Technol 57:1175-1181) is incorrect because job processing times are variable due to both deteriorating jobs and learning effects, which is not taken into account by the authors. In this note, we show by a counter-example that the published result is incorrect and provide the corrected result.
