N2 - This paper examines the openshop problem with machine dependent processing times. Two objectives are considered; minimizing the maximal completion (makespan), and minimizing the mean flow time. For this problem with the makespan criteria and the number of jobs greater or equal to the number of machines we present an O(mn) optimal algorithm and prove that the same problem with the number of jobs less than the number of machines but greater or equal three is NP-hard. We also present an O(n) optimal algorithm for this problem with mean flow time criteria but two machines only, and for a special case with m machines describe an optimal O(mn) algorithm. The three machine openshop problem with machine dependent processing times and mean flow time criteria remains open.
