In this work we present a review and comparative evaluation of heuristics and metaheuristics for the well-known permutation flowshop problem with the makespan criterion. A number of reviews and evaluations have already been proposed. However, the evaluations do not include the latest heuristics available and there is still no comparison of metalieuristics. Furthermore, since no common benchmarks and computing platforms are used, the results cannot be generalised. We propose a comparison of 25 methods, ranging from the classical Johnson\'s algorithm or dispatching rules to the most recent metaheuristics, including tabu search, simulated annealing, genetic algorithms, iterated local search and hybrid techniques. For the evaluation we use the standard test of Taillard [Eur. J. Operation. Res. 64 (1993) 278] composed of 120 instances of different sizes. In the evaluations we use the experimental design approach to obtain valid conclusions on the effectiveness and efficiency of the different methods tested. (c) 2004 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved
