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.

Altıntaş, Cansu; Azizoğlu, Meral (2020-04-01)
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...

A genetic algorithm for the resource constrained project scheduling problem
Özleyen, Erdem; Sönmez, Rifat; Department of Civil Engineering (2011)
The resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP) aims to find a schedule of minimum makespan by starting each activity such that resource constraints and precedence constraints are respected. However, as the problem is NP-hard (Non-Deterministic Polynomial-Time Hard) in the strong sense, the performance of exact procedures is limited and can only solve small-sized project networks. In this study a genetic algorithm is proposed for the RCPSP. The proposed genetic algorithm (GA) aims to find near-o...
JOB-SHOP SCHEDULING UNDER A NONRENEWABLE RESOURCE CONSTRAINT
TOKER, A; KONDAKCI, S; ERKIP, N (JSTOR, 1994-08-01)
In this paper we consider the job shop scheduling problem under a discrete non-renewable resource constraint. We assume that jobs have arbitrary processing times and resource requirements and there is a unit supply of the resource at each time period. We develop an approximation algorithm for this problem and empirically test its effectiveness in finding the minimum makespan schedules.
