The subject of this e-book is named dynamic scheduling, and is used to consult 3 dimensions of undertaking administration and scheduling: the development of a baseline time table and the research of a undertaking schedule’s possibility as training of the undertaking keep an eye on section in the course of undertaking development. This dynamic scheduling viewpoint implicitly assumes that the usability of a project’s baseline agenda is very restricted and purely acts as some degree of reference within the undertaking lifestyles cycle. for this reason, a venture agenda may still specifically be regarded as not anything greater than a predictive version that may be used for source potency calculations, time and value danger analyses, undertaking monitoring and function size, and so on.
In this e-book, the 3 dimensions of dynamic scheduling are highlighted intimately and are in accordance with and encouraged through a mix of educational study experiences at Ghent college (www.ugent.be), in-company trainings at Vlerick enterprise college (www.vlerick.com) and consultancy tasks at OR-AS (www.or-as.be). First, the development of a undertaking baseline time table is a relevant subject matter during the quite a few chapters of the booklet, and is mentioned from a complexity viewpoint with and with no the presence of venture assets. moment, the production of an knowledge of the susceptible components in a baseline time table is mentioned on the finish of the 2 baseline scheduling elements as agenda threat research suggestions that may be utilized on most sensible of the baseline agenda. 3rd, the baseline agenda and its threat analyses can be utilized as instructions in the course of the venture regulate step the place genuine deviations might be corrected in the margins of the project’s time and value reserves.
The moment version of this ebook has noticeable corrections, additions and amendments intimately in the course of the booklet. additionally bankruptcy 15 on "Dynamic Scheduling with ProTrack" has been thoroughly rewritten and prolonged with a bit on "ProTrack as a study tool".

Normal Cost (NC): The cost associated with the normal duration. Crash Cost (CC): The cost associated with the crash duration. The early time/cost trade-off models assumed the direct activity cost functions to be linear nonincreasing functions, as shown in Fig. 1. e. the sum of the activity costs) within a specified project deadline. Therefore, the activity costs are a function of the activity durations, which are bounded from below (crash duration) and from above (normal duration). Consequently, the project manager needs to decide the optimal timing for each activity by selecting a time/cost combination for each activity.
The earliest start of an activity is equal to or larger than the earliest finish of all its predecessor activities. The earliest finish efi of an activity i is defined as its earliest start time increased with its duration estimate. 2 are given by es1 = 0, es2 = 0, es3 = 0, es4 = 0, es5 = 5, es6 = 5, es7 = 5, es8 = 3, es9 = 6, es10 = 6, es11 = 7, es12 = 9, es13 = 12 and es14 = 17. The overall minimal project duration equals 17 time units. Latest Start Schedule (LSS) The latest finish lfi of each activity i can be calculated in an analogous way, using backward calculations, starting from the project deadline ın at the dummy end node of the project.
Therefore, the activity costs are a function of the activity durations, which are bounded from below (crash duration) and from above (normal duration). Consequently, the project manager needs to decide the optimal timing for each activity by selecting a time/cost combination for each activity. To that purpose, each 1 Note that this classification can be subject to discussion. The discrete time/cost trade-off problem as discussed in Sect. 2 is known to be NP-hard, and hence, constructing an optimal schedule for this scheduling problem is known to be a very difficult problem.
