This paper presents a production control approach for the testing and rework cell in a dynamic and stochastic computer integrated manufacturing (CIM) system. The proposed situation dependent decision selector (SDDS) observes the status of the system and jobs at every decision point, and makes its three different decisions on dispatching, pre-emption, and dispatching within pre-emption in real time. This paper also develops a new feature selection algorithm for the SDDS. Experimental results show that the SDDS is better than other static control rules and another dynamic control approach with respect to the number of tardy jobs.
