Abstract
Equipment support resources are the substantial prerequisites for decision-making in equipment support task. The renewable resources especially the scarce ones are usually limited in quantity. On account of the limited resource units that can be assigned to activities, the project completion time will most likely be greater than the duration that critical path method has originally calculated, without taking into account the resource usage limit. To ensure that the task will be completed within the scheduled task duration and to increase the feasibility of the decision making of an equipment support task, the task has to be scheduled under resource constraint, which belongs to resource constrained project schedule problem (RCPSP). Specific components such as initialization, crossover, mutation, and repairing operators, et al., of the genetic algorithms are designed to solve the problem. The efficiency of the adopted method is demonstrated by obtaining the optimal solutions to a benchmark instance with medium scale.
