Additional results in the analysis of scheduling flexible manufacturing systems using the model proposed by J.R. Perkins and P.R. Kumar (IEEE Trans. on Autom. Control, vol.34, no.2, p.139-48, Feb. 1989) are presented. The concept of idling is used to derive a new lower bound on the performance of any bounded single machine scheduling policy. A discrete-time linear system is used to compute the backlog trajectories for a class of clearing policies. An example of unbounded backlog in a network is presented, using a clear-a-fraction policy
