We survey recent results on the computational complexity of mixed shop scheduling problems. In a mixed shop, some jobs have fixed machine orders (as in the job shop), while the operations of the other jobs may be processed in arbitrary order (as in the open shop). The main attention is devoted to establishing the boundary between polynomially solvable and NP-hard problems. When the number of operations per job is unlimited, we focus on problems with a fixed number of jobs.
