The Mathematics of Resource Allocation and Scheduling

Efficient operation of an enterprise requires that resources be deployed in an optimal manner. Careful advance planning is necessary but not sufficient if changes in demand or availability are intrinsic to the application area. To sustain efficient operation the ability to react in a timely manner to changes in resource demand and availability is also essential. Project objectives were to devise new tools and algorithms for obtaining exact or approximate solutions to resource allocation and scheduling problems.
The project  completed in June 2002.
