The great variety of project scheduling problems studied in the ever growing literature motivated the recent development of classification schemes. In a recent paper (EJOR, 112 (1999) 3-41), Brucker et al. make the claim that, so far, no classification scheme exists which is compatible with what is commonly accepted in machine scheduling and introduce a new classification. In this note, we critically review major shortcomings of the suggested scheme which play heavy limitations on its potential use.
