Project scheduling : a research handbook by Erik L Demeulemeester( )

25 editions published in 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 752 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Project management can be broadly defined as the process of managing, allocating and timing resources to achieve given objectives in an efficient and expedient manner. The objectives of the book cover three areas: classification; procedures; and problems
Robust project scheduling by Erik L Demeulemeester( )

8 editions published between 2009 and 2014 in English and Undetermined and held by 56 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The majority of publications in the extensive literature on resource-constrained project scheduling focus on a static deterministic setting for which a so-called baseline schedule is computed prior to project execution. In the real world, however, a project may be subject to considerable uncertainty. During the actual execution of a project, the baseline schedule may indeed suffer from disruptive events causing the actually realized activity start times to deviate from the predicted start times that were given in the baseline. This text focuses on robust project scheduling, in particular the development of effective and efficient proactive and reactive scheduling procedures. Proactive scheduling aims at generating robust baseline schedules that carry sufficient protection against possible schedule disruptions that may occur during project execution. Reactive scheduling procedures aim at repairing the baseline schedule when the built-in protection fails during the execution of the project. We discuss the fundamentals of state of the art proactive/reactive project scheduling approaches and, along the lines, discuss key directions for future research

Heuristic procedures for generating stable project baseline schedules by Stijn Van de Vonder( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 5 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Solution robust project scheduling is a growing research field aiming at constructing proactive schedules to cope with multiple disruptions during project execution. When stochastic activity durations are considered, including time buffers between activities is a proven method to improve the stability of a baseline schedule. This paper introduces multiple algorithms to include time buffers in a given schedule while a predefined project due date remains respected. Multiple efficient heuristic and meta-heuristic procedures are proposed to allocate buffers throughout the schedule. An extensive simulation-based analysis of the performance of all algorithms is given. The impact of the activity duration variance structure on the performance is discussed in detail

Integrating nurse and surgery scheduling by Jeroen Beliën( Book )

3 editions published between 2005 and 2006 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

One common problem at hospitals is the extreme variation in daily (even hourly) workload pressure for nurses. The operating room is considered to be the main engine and hence the main generator of variance in the hospital. It is our believe that integrating the operation room scheduling process with the nurse scheduling process is a simple, yet effective way to achieve considerable savings in staffing costs. The purpose of this paper is threefold. First of all, we present a concrete model that integrates both the nurse and the operating room scheduling process. Secondly, we show how the column generation technique, often employed for nurse scheduling problems, can easily cope with this model extension. Thirdly, by means of a large number of computational experiments we provide an idea of the cost saving opportunities and required solution times

Visualizing the demand for various resources as a function of the master surgery schedule : a case study by Jeroen Beliën( Book )

3 editions published in 2005 in English and Undetermined and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This paper presents a software system that visualizes the impact of the master surgery schedule on the demand for various resources throughout the rest of the hospital. The master surgery schedule can be seen as the engine that drives the hospital. Therefore, it is very important for decision makers to have a clear image on how the demand for resources is linked to the surgery schedule. The software presented in this paper enables schedulers to instantaneously view the impact of, e.g., an exchange of two block assignments in the master surgery schedule on the expected resource consumption pattern. A case study entailing a large Belgian surgery unit illustrates how the software can be used to assist in building better surgery schedules
A sequential procurement model for a PPP project pipeline by Dennis De Clerck( )

3 editions published in 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Public-private partnerships have seen the daylight in response to the adagio that project responsibilities and risks should be efficiently allocated between the public and the private sector. Nevertheless, the considerable bidding costs inhibit the competition in the market. A trustworthy project agenda could substantiate the PPP market's attractiveness in the belief that a current success results in a knowledge and cost advantage in future tenders. This paper builds a sequential PPP procurement model and heuristically approximates the Markov perfect equilibrium in which contractors determine how much money they are willing to invest in the bid preparation and which mark-up is appropriate for each project in the pipeline. A pipeline of projects pushes down the mark-ups and the government procurement cost. Nonetheless, according to the experiments, it are only players with an initial experiential advantage who tend to make higher investment efforts so that additional governmental policies might be required to level the playing field
The proactive and reactive resource-constrained project scheduling problem by Morteza Davari( )

3 editions published between 2016 and 2017 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The proactive and reactive resource-constrained project scheduling problem (PR-RCPSP), that has been introduced recently (Davari and Demeulemeester, 2016a), deals with activity duration uncertainty in a very unique way. The optimal solution to an instance of the PR-RCPSP is a proactive and reactive policy (PR-policy) that is a combination of a baseline schedule and a set of required transitions (reactions). In this research, we introduce two interesting classes of reactions, namely the class of selection-based reactions and the class of buffer-based reactions. We also discuss the theoretical relevance of these two classes of reactions. We run some computational results and report the contributions of the selection-based reactions and the buffer-based reactions in the optimal solution. The results suggest that although both selection-based reactions and buffer-based reactions contribute largely in the construction of the optimal PR-policy, the contribution of the buffer-based reactions is of much greater importance
