When I moved to the AS/400 years ago (from IBM mainframe) one of the first things I was taught was not to think the same way about CPU %. If the machine has it available why not let a job have 100%? As long as the mix of jobs are playing well together (job priority, memory, etc) it's best to let each job take as much as it can.

Or am I misunderstanding what you're trying to accomplish?

Subject: best way to limit a job

I'm looking for the best and simplest way to limit how much of the system a
particular job will take. Ideally, we would be able to configure a job so
that it won't take more than x% of the CPU (as seen on a WRKACTJOB display).
We've tried using *CLS objects, defining Run Priority and Time slice
seconds, but it doesn't seem to limit the job. It still takes as much of
the CPU as it wants.
