We simulate the performance of a simple production system in which due-dates are set internally. We investigate priority rules aimed at minimizing tardiness, emphasizing a "modified duedate rule" which functions effectively in conjunction with internally-set deadlines and which adapts to both tight and loose conditions in the due-dates. This rule is simple and logical, and shows considerable promise for application in complex production systems.
