By Christoph Schwindt, Jürgen Zimmermann

Due to the expanding value of product differentiation and collapsing product lifestyles cycles, an increasing number of value-adding actions within the and repair area are prepared in initiatives. initiatives are available many varieties, usually taking significant time and eating a large number of assets. The administration and scheduling of tasks represents a difficult activity and venture functionality can have a substantial influence on an organization's competitiveness.

This guide provides cutting-edge techniques to undertaking administration and scheduling. greater than sixty contributions written by means of major specialists within the box supply an authoritative survey of contemporary advancements. The publication serves as a entire reference, either, for researchers and undertaking administration professionals.

The instruction manual includes volumes. quantity 1 is dedicated to single-modal and multi-modal venture scheduling. quantity 2 provides multi-project difficulties, venture scheduling lower than uncertainty and vagueness, managerial methods and a separate half on purposes, case stories and data systems.

Walter Gutjahr in Chap. 34 surveys models for project portfolio selection problems which include learning and knowledge depreciation effects. Different types of learning curves are reviewed and it is explained how these models have been used in the context of project staffing and scheduling problems. For the integration of skill development into project portfolio selection models, a mixed-integer nonlinear programming formulation is proposed. Moreover, analytical results for continuous project portfolio investment problems under skill development are reviewed, for which it is assumed that projects can also be partially funded.

New product development constitutes a classical application area of project management procedures and tools. Nevertheless, managing product innovation is still a challenging task, due to the uncertainty associated with the development process and the strategic importance of its success. In Chap. 45 Dirk Pons provides guidelines from a systems engineering perspective, emphasizing on the management of human resources in the development process. Another traditional application area of project management is the construction industry.

In sum, the problem can be formulated as a fuzzy multi-criteria multi-mode resource-constrained project scheduling problem. Four objective functions are taken into account: the total project cost, the project duration, the total crashing costs of activities, and the quantified environmental impact of the project. Xu and Zeng develop an adaptive hybrid genetic algorithm for this problem and describe its application to the Jinping-II hydroelectric construction project on the Yalong River in the Sichuan-Chongqing region.
