Given an undirected graph with edge weights, we are asked to find an orientation, i.e., an assignment of a direction to each edge, so as to minimize the weighted maximum outdegree in the resulted directed graph. The problem is called MMO, and is a restricted variant of the well-known minimum makespan problem. As previous studies, it is shown that MMO is in P for trees, weak NP-hard for planar bipartite graphs, and strong NP-hard for general graphs. There are still gaps between those graph classes. The objective of this paper is to show tight thresholds of complexity: We show that MMO is (i) in P for cactuses, (ii) weakly NP-hard for outerplanar graphs, and also (iii) strongly NP-hard for P4-bipartite graphs. The latter two are minimal superclasses of the former. Also, we show the NP-hardness for the other related graph classes, diamond-free, house-free, series-parallel, bipartite and planar.
