Logical constraints for projects

May

New publication:

A new solution approach to solve the resource-constrained project scheduling problem with logical constraints

In our most recent publication in the European Journal of Operational Research, a novel model to schedule project with limited resources has been presented using logical constraints. These so-called OR and BI constraints add additional features to the traditional AND constraints to make the project network more realistic.

New publication:

An exact algorithm for an integrated project staffing problem with a homogeneous workforce

In our most recent publication in the Journal of Scheduling, two well-known problems from literature that are often treated separately, are now combined in a novel integrated solutions approach. Both the project scheduling and the resource staffing problem are solved by an integrated exact algorithm, leading to overall improved results.

New publication:

Payment models and net present value optimization for resource-constrained project scheduling

In our most recent publication in the Computers and Industrial Engineering, three payments models for the single- and multi-mode resource-constrained project scheduling problem have been proposed and tested using artificial project data. It is a follow-up study of the master thesis awarded by PMI Belgium.
