We mainly study the problem of schedulingngroups of jobs onnspecial-purpose processors andmgeneral-purpose processors at different speeds provided that the setup time of each job is less than times of its processing time. We first propose an improved LS algorithm. Then, by applying this new algorithm, we obtain two bounds for the ratio of the approximate solution to the optimal solutionT* under two different conditions.
