Supermarket models with different servers have become a key in modelling resource management of stochastic networks, such as computer networks, manufacturing systems, transportation networks, and healthcare systems. However, the different servers always make analysis of such a supermarket model more interesting, difficult and challenging. This paper provides a novel method for analysing the supermarket models with different servers through a multi-dimensional continuous-time Markov reward pr
