Resource-Constrained Scheduling Extensions

  • Mario Vanhoucke


Resource-constrained project scheduling has been a topic in both the research community and the practical oriented business magazines. This chapter presents some advanced results obtained by various research projects, extends the resource models of the previous chapter to other scheduling objectives, studies the effect of activity splitting and setup times and introduces learning effects in a resource-constrained project environment. Each part of this section can be considered as a special topic of resource-constrained project scheduling and can be easily skipped without losing overview on the general dynamic scheduling theme described throughout the book.
