Project Scheduling Methods Based on Theory of Ordered Fuzzy Numbers

Abstract :

In this the paper we present new methods, called OFCPM, OFPERT, for estimating a project completion time in the situation when activity duration times in the project are given in the form of Ordered Fuzzy Numbers OFNs. Extended Critical Path Method and Project Evaluation and Review Technique have been developed as new methods dedicated to project scheduling, preserving its basic concept. Ordered fuzzy numbers are used to project scheduling under uncertainty. The duration time of each project activity is estimated by experts (experts views of the activity duration time) based on their experience. These new methods will be verify on some examples. The comparison of our fuzzy approaches to existing deterministic sans stochastic ones is under study.
