Owing to the amazing rise attention of the government has paid to the railway construction, and high-speed projects have been started in various places, the railway construction enterprises begin to focus more emphasis upon how to implement and balance multi-projects at the same time. On the other hand, these projects occupy the cherish resources and lead to competition. In this research, Genetic Algorithm (GA) is used to solve the allocation resources problem in order to achieve the shortest total duration. Finally, an example is as a proof to the conclusion.
