Crashing is shortening the project makespan by reducing activity times in a project network by allocating resources to them. Activity durations are often uncertain and exact probability distribution itself might be ambiguous. We study a class of distributionally robust project crashing problems where the objective is to optimize the first two marginal moments (means and standard deviations) of the activity durations to minimize the worst-case expected makespan. Under partial correlation… CONTINUE READING
