Scheduling software projects to minimize the development time and cost with a given staff

F. Padberg
Proceedings Eighth Asia-Pacific Software Engineering Conference  
By applying stochastic optimization techniques, schedules for software projects can be computed which minimize the development time or cost with a given staff.  ...  When the scheduling strategy is fixed, the model outputs a probability distribution for the project completion time or cost.  ...  First, we need a model for software projects which quantifies the impact of scheduling decisions on the development time and cost of a project.  ...

Project Scheduling using Event Based Scheduler with ABC

The problem comprises the correct assignment of employees to the various tasks that frame a software project, casing in time and cost limitations.  ...  Project scheduling could be a mechanism to communicate what tasks has to be compelled to get done and which resources are going to be allotted to finish those tasks in what timeframe.  ...  The Meta heuristic algorithms approached the software project scheduling problem with their multi objective formulation, where both the project cost duration and project cost had been minimized.  ...
