Constructive heuristics have a great interest as they manage to find in a very short time, solutions of relatively good quality. Such solutions may be used as initial solutions for metaheuristics for example. In this work, we propose a new efficient constructive heuristic for the No-Wait Flowshop Scheduling Problem. This proposed heuristic is based on observations on the structure of best solutions of small instances as well as on analyzes of efficient constructive heuristics principles of the literature. Experiments have been conducted and results show the efficiency of the proposed heuristic compared to ones from the literature.
