In this paper, the problem of minimizing the total completion time on a single machine with the presence of release dates is studied. We introduce two different approaches leading to very large-scale neighborhoods in which the best improving neighbor can be determined in polynomial time. Furthermore, computational results are presented to get insight in the performance of the developed neighborhoods.
