Abstract: Over the past several years, a number of survey, classification, and review articles have focused on scheduling research in machine [only] constrained job shops. Barring the work of Treleven (1989), there is no reported research that presents a detailed review of the issues related to scheduling and sequencing in job shops with multiple resource constraints. In his article, Treleven reviewed the research in job shops constrained by machines and labour. Job shops are not only constrained by machines and labour, but by auxiliary resources (in the form of tooling. etc.) as well. This paper extends the work of Treleven by reviewing the literature on scheduling in job shops constrained by more than one resource and comparing the scheduling research in auxiliary resource-constrained job shops with that of labour-constrained job shops. In addition, this article raises some issues for future scheduling research in multiple resource-constrained job shops.
