A computerized algorithm to assess practical merits of work load histograms
Non-storable resource schedules are subject to two primary influences: those related to time constrained scheduling and those related to resource constrained scheduling. This article evaluates non-storable resource scheduling profiles, examines scheduling methods by using criteria that relates to a project's financial objectives, and outlines an algorithm to evaluate resource schedules and to select the schedule that best fits a project's requirements. It also reviews the literature on scheduling methods that generate the shortest possible project duration and discusses the concerns of using methods that are most often used to perform resource scheduling. It then describes a performance index for evaluating quantitatively time-constrained schedules and outlines its proposed algorithm, one known as Optimum Resource Schedule (ORS).
