Total Cost Control in Project Management via Satisficing
A robust optimization model is developed that uses a conditional value-at-risk satisficing measure and linear and piecewise-linear decision rules for activity start time and crashing decisions designed to perform robustly against all possible scenarios of activity time uncertainty, when implemented in either static or rolling horizon mode.
Designing practical coordinating contracts in decentralized projects
Managing decentralized projects (DPs) effectively is a critical issue today as projects have become increasingly complex, costly, and strategically important (especially IT and new product
Managing Systems Engineering Projects with Uncertain Requirements
Prior to being alerted that a requirement has changed, project management typically recommends that an engineer treat that requirement as fixed. But proper risk management emphasizes that all
