In this paper, we expand the scope of constraint-directed scheduling techniques to deal with the case where the scheduling problem includes alternative activities. That is, not only does the scheduling problem consist of determining when an activity is to execute, but also determining which set of alternative activities is to execute at all. Such problems encompass both alternative resource problems and alternative process plan problems. We formulate a constraint-based representation of… CONTINUE READING
