Abstract: The resource-constrained project scheduling problem involves the determination of a schedule of the project activities, satisfying the precedence and resource constraints while minimizing the project duration. In practice, activity durations may be subject to variability. We propose a stochastic methodology for the determination of a project execution policy and a vector of predictive activity starting times with the objective of minimizing a cost function that consists of the weighted expected activity starting time deviations and the penalties or bonuses associated with late or early project completion. In a computational experiment, we show that our procedure greatly outperforms existing algorithms described in the literature.
