In this paper, we focus on an online scheduling problem with position-based learning effect on a single machine, where the jobs are released online over time and preemption is not allowed. The information about each job $J_j$, including the basic processing time $p_j$ and the release time $r_j$, is only available when it arrives. The actual processing time $p_j'$ of each job $J_j$ is defined as a function related to its position $r$, i.e., $p_j' = p_j(\alpha-r\beta)$, where $\alpha$ and $\beta$ are both nonnegative learning index. Our goal is to minimize the sum of completion time of all jobs. For this problem, we design a deterministic polynomial time online algorithm Delayed Shortest Basic Processing Time (DSBPT). In order to facilitate the understanding of the online algorithm, we present a relatively common and simple example to describe the execution process of the algorithm, and then by competitive analysis, we show that online algorithm DSBPT is a best possible online algorithm with a competitive ratio of 2.

 Algorithm 2 FDSBPT At arbitrary time $t$, if the machine is idle and there exist valid jobs, the valid job with the shortest basic processing time is selected. If there are multiple jobs with the shortest processing time, choose arbitrary job $J_j$ flexibly, presume its processing position is k, if $p_j(I)(\alpha-k\beta)\leq t$, we arrange job $J_j$ on the idle machine at time $t$; otherwise, we do nothing until the next time.
