PM: Resource-constrained Project Scheduling

Objective:

The projects aim is to provide a solution for one of the most important problems in project management:
The resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP), which aims to schedule at minimal duration a set of activities subject to precedence constraints and the limited availability of resources. 

The modules aim to support the Project Manager during the planning process of new projects, taking under consideration the following information already maintained by ]project-open[ 

  • Resources (... and their qualifications)
  • Absences of resources  
  • Current resource assignment in a multi-project environment
  • Budget and time constraints
  • etc.


Update: ]po[ now integrates with TaskJuggler
