Project Management in ETM
Multiproject scheduling and resource allocation methods are reviewed. Optimization models and heuristics are compared. Earlier comparisons reported in the literature are summarized. The use of heuristics is illustrated using a 3-project example with 23, 40 and 20 activities in the projects. The "Total Float Rule" is reported to have the best overall performance except for the cases where resources are loosely constrained. The report recommends performing several heuristics simultaneously in order to hedge against adopting poor schedules
