In this paper we consider the single machine scheduling problem with truncated job-dependent learning effect. By the truncated job-dependent learning effect, we mean that the actual job processing time is a function which depends not only on the job-dependent learning effect (i.e., the learning in the production process of some jobs to be faster than that of others) but also on a control parameter. The objectives are to minimize the makespan, the total completion time, the total absolute deviation of completion time, the earliness, tardiness and common (slack) due-date penalty, respectively. Several polynomial time algorithms are proposed to optimally solve the problems with the above objective functions.
