Optimization in project coordination scheduling through application of Taguchi methods

In an effort to determine ways to decrease projected project completion dates, as well as to reduce project cost overruns, a predictive schedule was developed using Taguchi methods that would compare interaction of resources in PERT/CPM plans using the values of all the factors in the resource schedule.Taguchi methods are a subset of statistical design of experiments (DoE) which use statistics to improve performance of scheduling resources, and provide consistent product outcomes.The result is that activities causing delays can be identified, and possibly adjusted before the delays become too significant, and the cost overruns become too overwhelming.Details of the Taguchi methods are outlined, and several practical examples are provided.
