The topic of this book is known as dynamic scheduling, and is used to refer to three dimensions of project management and scheduling: the construction of a baseline schedule and the analysis of a project schedule’s risk as preparation of the project control phase during project progress. This dynamic scheduling point of view implicitly assumes that the usability of a project’s baseline schedule is rather limited and only acts as a point of reference in the project life cycle. Consequently, a project schedule should especially be considered as nothing more than a predictive model that can be used for resource efficiency calculations, time and cost risk analyses, project tracking and performance measurement, and so on. In this book, the three dimensions of dynamic scheduling are highlighted in detail and are based on and inspired by a combination of academic research studies at Ghent University (www.ugent.be), in-company trainings at Vlerick Business School (www.vlerick.com) and consultancy projects at OR-AS (www.or-as.be). First, the construction of a project baseline schedule is a central theme throughout the various chapters of the book, and is discussed from a complexity point of view with and without the presence of project resources. Second, the creation of an awareness of the weak parts in a baseline schedule is discussed at the end of the two baseline scheduling parts as schedule risk analysis techniques that can be applied on top of the baseline schedule. Third, the baseline schedule and its risk analyses can be used as guidelines during the project control step where actual deviations can be corrected within the margins of the project’s time and cost reserves. The second edition of this book has seen corrections, additions and amendments in detail throughout the book. Moreover Chapter 15 on "Dynamic Scheduling with ProTrack" has been completely rewritten and extended with a section on "ProTrack as a research tool".

Microsoft Project has always been an excellent project planning, scheduling and control tool. Project 2013 continues the evolution of this product with the introduction of a simplified interface, compatible with all other Office 2013 programs and a number of other enhancements: Burndown charts (a key requirement for agile project management) together with a number of new data fields to support themNew reporting features that let you create powerful, colourful, dynamic reports without exporting data to another programImproved out-of-box reports and better visualsTask paths to provide more options than the basic critical pathExtended date support up to 2149 (now that would be a very long project!)Backstage overhaul of the File functions makes it easier to find what you are looking for and provides a single location for opening and saving files to your computer, the Web, Project Server or syncing with a SharePoint site Project 2013 in easy steps will quickly get you making use of the powerful features of Microsoft’s latest version of this popular project management software. Beginning with first principles, the book sets out the right way to start a project and develop the project plan. It shows you how to break a project down into tasks that can then be scheduled and allocated to resources. These can then be tracked and controlled to completion. It explains the different types of task dependencies and how to use them to make sure things happen when they are needed. For medium to larger projects it shows you how to structure your project for success. Projects are carried out by people and other resources and this book shows you how to allocate and control the human resources on your project, tracking holidays, vacations and other staff absences. It also shows you how to track other resources and costs so that you can stay in full financial control of your project. Finally, viewing and communicating information about your project in a timely way to the project stakeholders is also critical to success and this book shows you how to do it in the most effective way. Project 2013 in easy steps covers the standard and professional versions of the product and how they interface to Project Server and SharePoint server (companion products).

From the Preface: This festschrift is devoted to recognize the career of a man who not only witnessed the growth of operations research from its inception, but also contributed significantly to this growth. Dr. Salah E. Elmaghraby received his doctorate degree from Cornell University in 1958, and since then, his scholarly contributions have enriched the fields of production planning and scheduling and project scheduling. This collection of papers is contributed in his honor by his students, colleagues, and acquaintances. It offers a tribute to the inspiration received from his work, and from his guidance and advice over the years, and recognizes the legacy of his many contributions. Dr. Elmaghraby is a pioneer in the area of project scheduling (in particular, project planning and control through network models, for which he coined the term ‘activity networks’.) In his initial work in this area, he developed an algebra based on signal flow graphs and semi-Markov processes for analyzing generalized activity networks involving activities with probabilistic durations. This work led to the development of what was later known as the Graphical Evaluation and Review Technique (GERT), and GERT simulation models. He has made fundamental contributions in determining criticality indices for activities, in developing methodologies for project compression and time/cost analysis, and in the use of stochastic and chance-constrained programming and Petri Nets for the analysis of activity networks. This volume brings together fourteen contributions, which can be viewed under the following three main themes: operations research and its application in production planning; project scheduling, and production scheduling, inspired by, and in many cases based on, Dr. Elmaghraby’s work in these areas. The first five chapters are devoted to the first theme, followed by four chapters each devoted to the other two, respectively. An additional chapter is devoted to the vulnerability of multimodal freight systems.

With real-world examples and up-to-date modelingtechniques, the book equips readers with the basic knowledge neededfor understanding scheduling theory and delving into itsapplications. The authors begin with an introduction and overviewof sequencing and scheduling, including single-machine sequencing,optimization and heuristic solution methods, and models withearliness and tardiness penalties. The most current material onstochastic scheduling, including correct scheduling of safety timeand the use of simulation for optimization, is then presented andintegrated with deterministic models. Additional topical coverageincludes: Extensions of the basic model Parallel-machine models Flow shop scheduling Scheduling groups of jobs The job shop problem Simulation models for the dynamic job shop Network methods for project scheduling Resource-constrained project scheduling Stochastic and safe scheduling Extensive end-of-chapter exercises are provided, some of whichare spreadsheet-oriented, and link scheduling theory to the mostpopular analytic platform among today's students andpractitioners—the Microsoft Office Excel® spreadsheet.Extensive references direct readers to additional literature, andthe book's related Web site houses material that reinforces thebook's concepts, including research notes, data sets, and examplesfrom the text. Principles of Sequencing and Scheduling is an excellent book forcourses on sequencing and scheduling at the upper-undergraduate andgraduate levels. It is also a valuable reference for researchersand practitioners in the fields of statistics, computer science,operations research, and engineering.
