Best insertion algorithm for resource constrained project scheduling problem
This paper considers heuristics for well known resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP). First a feasible schedule is constructed using randomized best insertion algorithm. The construction is followed by a local search where a new solution is generated as follows: first we randomly delete m activities from the list, which are then reinserted in the list in consecutive order. At the end of run, the schedule with the minimum makespan is selected. Experimental work shows very good results on standard test instances found in PSPLIB.
