I am not sure if I understand you clearly. If you meant 3 jobs running targeted to the same device like a Tape drive, BE cannot write more than 1 operation to a tape at a time. If it is B2D you need to look for the B2D settings and increase "Allo concurrent jobs" setting.

You can change your concurrent job settings by increasing the concurrent write sessions in the properties of the device: in the storage tab go into the properties of your device and set the concurrent write sessions
