Abstract

The objective of this review was to acquire knowledge concerning the resourceconstrained critical path method technique (RCPMT) that capitalizes on and study the existing critical path method (CPM) and resource-constrained scheduling (RCS). A traditional CPM schedule is not realistic since it assumes unlimited resources, some of which are highly limited in practice. Although traditional RCS can consider resource limitations, they do not provide the correct floats and critical path, as the CPM does. This paper presents six previous studies to find the resource dependency between activities for a correct float calculation in resource-constrained schedules. A brief review and evaluation of each study is included in this paper. This study is of interest to academics because it highlights the advantages and disadvantages of different algorithms that have attempted to overcome present problems in traditional resource-constrained scheduling techniques.
