Project management and scheduling

Abstract

The EURO Working Group on Project Management and Scheduling (WG-PMS) was established in 1986, with the aim of assessing the state-of-the-art and stimulating progress in both theory and practice of project management and scheduling. To achieve these goals, the Working Group organizes workshops every two years. The Ninth International Workshop on Project Management and Scheduling was held in Nancy (France), from April 26 till April 28, 2004, and was hosted by LORIA–INRIA Lorraine with the participation of 120 researchers and practitioners from 24 different countries. The proceedings book contains extended abstracts of all 105 papers accepted by the programme committee. These papers were clustered for presentation into 32 sessions scheduled in three parallel sessions corresponding to Project Management, Shop Scheduling, and Application. This Feature Issue was addressed to participants of the workshop and extended to a high-quality paper related to Project Management and Scheduling problems involving additional constraints for modeling and solving problems arising in practical applications. This Issue contains 13 papers accepted after a careful reviewing process. We would like to express our gratitude to all the reviewers for their invaluable efforts allowing us to select a set of papers. The first four papers address some extensions of project scheduling problems. The paper of Ballestin, Valls and Quintanilla deal with the resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP) under the assumption that the activities in progress are preemptible. Few considerations have been made in the literature to cover the case of the preemption of activities of the RCPSP. They focus on the RCPSP where a maximum of one interruption per
