This paper considers the problem of scheduling uniform parallel machines with machine eligibility restrictions to minimize total weighted tardiness. We presented a new heuristic algorithm based local search on each machine for this problem. The experimental results have shown that the proposed heuristic was a very effective method for this problem in terms of solution quality, computational expense, coding complexity and algorithm stability, as seen through a comparison of 6 algorithms on various pairs of test data. Moreover, we observed that the proposed algorithm can be extended to the unrelated parallel machine setting.
