Abstract: We study the resource-constrained project scheduling problem with stochastic activity durations. We introduce a new class of scheduling policies for this problem, which make a number of a-priori sequencing decisions in a pre-processing phase, while the remaining decisions are made dynamically during project execution. The pre-processing decisions entail the addition of precedence constraints to the scheduling instance, hereby resolving some potential resource conflicts. We compare the performance of this new class with existing scheduling policies for the stochastic resource-constrained project scheduling problem, and we observe that the new class is significantly better when the variability in the activity durations is medium to high.
