Robust scheduling aims at the construction of a schedule that is protected against uncertain events. A stable schedule is a robust schedule that changes only little when variations in the input parameters arise. This paper presents a model for single-machine scheduling with stability objective and a common deadline. We propose a branch-and-bound algorithm for solving an approximate formulation of the model. The algorithm is exact when exactly one job is disrupted during schedule execution.
