Dispatching rule research has focused upon deterministic job shops and has used the same rule for all resources. This paper applies different rules for resources with high and low utilisation and assumes Beta distributed processing times. Data was obtained from a company that produces complex products in low volume. The mean tardiness of products decreased significantly when the highly utilised machines were carefully controlled.
