Task D Scheduled Earlier than Task B

A-Project Duration = 7 Days

this, it is necessary to identify each conflict and keep track of those enumerated. Davis and Heidorn |1|, Demeulerneester and Herroelen (2|, Stinson, Davis and Khumawala |7|, and Talbot and Patterson |8| show how this can be done. Each have clever ways of shortening the enumeration process, such as to

• Keep track of task completion times of partial solutions and then either identify and eliminate dominated partial solutions; or to

• Compute time bounds for unscheduled tasks and eliminate all solutions containing the partial solution if the project necessarily exceeds the completion time of another solution already identified.

Each of the four optimizing approaches provides the optimal resource-constrained schedule to small or moderately sized projects. All four require excessive computer time for large projects (Demeulemeester's requires the least), and the Davis and Stinson procedures require large amounts of computer memory for large projects. Patterson |5| describes and evaluates the earlier three approaches in detail.
