Abstract: In this paper we tackle the challenging problem of scheduling project activities to minimize the project duration, in which the activities (a) are subject to generalized precedence relations (minimal and maximal time lags between the activity starting and completion times), (b) require units of multiple renewable, nonrenewable and doubly-constrained resources for which a limited availability is imposed, and © can be performed in different ways, reflected in multiple activity modes. These multiple modes give rise to several kinds of trade-offs (time/resource, time/cost and resource trade-offs) which allow for a more efficient use of resources. We present a local search-based solution methodology which is able to handle many real-life project scheduling characteristics such as time-varying requirements and availabilities, activity ready times, due dates and deadlines, several types of permissible and mandatory activity overlaps, activity starting time constraints and other types of temporal constraints.
