Project Scheduling is concerned with the allocation of scarce resources over time. The rich optimisation models with time windows that are treated in this book cover a multitude of practical decision problems arising in diverse application areas such as construction engineering or make-to-order production planning. The book shows how Constraint Propagation techniques from Artificial Intelligence can be successfully combined with Operations Research methods for developing powerful exact and heuristic solution algorithms for a very general class of scheduling problems. Example applications demonstrate the effectiveness of the approach.SCHEDULING OF GROUND HANDLING OPERATIONS 111 Minutes Positioning Pass. ... Figure 7.1, taken from an airport handling manual (IATA 2000a), shows an example of how the minimum transit time of a B747 aircraft is determined.
