This paper tackles a parallel scheduling problem, with considering deterioration to minimize make-span function. A mathematical model is developed and because of high complexity, two meta-heuristics including the extended compact genetic algorithm (ECGA) and simulated annealing (SA) are used to obtain near optimal solutions in reasonable run time. For the computational measures, the sensitivity analysis is implemented for deterioration, and various instances are presented that show the effectiveness and capability of proposed methods.
