Abstract: In the literature of scheduling, many studies have been devoted to schedule single machine activities. Despite numerous studies done to bridge the gap between the mathematical models and real-life scheduling problems, there is still gap remained to be covered. In this study, position-based, time-based and experience-based learning effect calculations are employed simultaneously in order to extend applicability of the proposed model. At first, the modified single machine scheduling problem is formulated as a mixed integer mathematical model with non-linear terms. Finally, a hybrid imperialistic competitive algorithm and genetic algorithm is designed to solve this complex problem. The hybrid ICA-GA algorithm is modified in order to take advantage of ICAs intelligence and GAs operators such as crossover and mutation simultaneously.
