Beschreibung

The book presents the state of the art of deterministic resource-constrained project scheduling with time windows. General temporal constraints (arising from minimum and maximum time lags between project activities) and several different types of limited resources are considered. A large variety of time-based, financial, and resource-based objectives important in practice are studied. A thorough structural analysis of the feasible region of project scheduling problems and a classification and detailed investigation of objective functions are performed, which can be exploited for developing efficient exact and heuristic solution methods. New interesting applications of project scheduling to production and operations management as well as investment projects are discussed in the second edition.

From the reviews of the second edition:

"The book deals with so-called temporal project scheduling with schedule-dependent time windows. Overall, the book has produced a fairly comprehensive and well-organized treatment of these topics. the authors have done a terrific job of binding themincluding many of their own contributionstogether in a coherent way. Their well- grounded choices make the technical details easier to follow. As such, the book represents a noteworthy addition to project-scheduling reference list for both academicians and practitioners alike." (J Xue, Journal of the Operational Research Society, Vol. 56, 2005)

"The book presents a state of the art in the sub-field of scheduling theory, i.e. the project scheduling under scarce resources written by well known experts in the field. Although several books have been recently published in that area, one can observe a number of features which distinguish this book from the others. The book is thoroughly written and the mathematics used is adequate to the needs. It contains also many algorithms described in pseudo-code. Several examples complement nicely their presentation." (Jacek Blazewicz, Zentralblatt MATH, Vol. 1059 (10), 2005)

"At last a professional book dealing with the exact formulation of project scheduling. When I obtained it I first couldn't believe that there is really a book with definitions, propositions, proofs, lemmas and theorems about how to schedule activities with the metra potential method. Fortunately, there are also a lot of examples and concrete algorithms that describe simple scheduling tasks as well as schedule-improvement procedures. The book is truly scientific, you find e.g. a comprehensive list of references of more than 200 scientific publications." (Dr. Georg Angermeier, www.projektmagazin.de, August, 2004)
