In this thesis, we consider a multi-mode project scheduling problem with a single nonrenewable resource. We assume that the resource is released in pre-specified times at pre-specified quantities and the resource is consumed at activity completions. The activities can be processed at different modes where a mode is defined by a processing time and a resource requirement amount. Our problem is to select the modes and timings of the activities so as to minimize the project completion time. We develop a mixed integer linear model and present a branch and bound algorithm. The results of our experiments have revealed that the mathematical model can handle only small-sized problem instances with up to 20 tasks and branch and bound algorithm can solve problem instances with up to 100 tasks for some resource release profiles.

In this paper, a project scheduling problem with multi-modes and a single non-renewable resource is considered. The resource is released in pre-specified times at pre-specified quantities. An activity can be executed at different modes where a mode is defined by a processing time and a resource requirement amount. The objective is to minimize the project completion time. A branch and bound algorithm that enumerates the partial solutions based on the mode assignment decisions is presented. The results of the...

LP relaxation-based solution algorithms for the multi-mode project scheduling with a non-renewable resource
Azizoğlu, Meral; Pamir, Selin Kirbiyik (2015-01-01)
In this study, we consider a multi-mode resource allocation problem with a single non-renewable resource. We assume the resource is released at defined time points and at defined quantities. We also assume that the activity costs are charged once they are completed. Our aim is to minimise the project completion time. We formulate the problem as a pure integer programming model and show that it is strongly NP-hard. We find lower bounds by pure and mixed integer linear programming relaxations of the model and...
A branch and bound algorithm to minimize the total weighted flowtime for the two-stage assembly scheduling problem
Tozkapan, A; Kirca, O; Chung, CS (2003-02-01)
In this paper, a two-stage assembly scheduling problem is considered with the objective of minimizing the total weighted flowtime. A lower bounding procedure and a dominance criterion are developed and incorporated into a branch and bound procedure. A heuristic procedure is also used to derive an initial upper bound. Computational results of the algorithm are presented.
