When more than one activity in a project requires the same indivisible resource, the project schedule can resolve this resource constraint by specifying the order in which these activities are to be performed. Several heuristic criteria for determining this order are considered. The minimum cost schedule for a given project deadline can often be found by determining the optimal schedule ignoring the resource constraints and then resolving any resource usage conflicts by ordering the conflicting activities so as to minimize the project completion time. A simple procedure for determining this latter order is given. Author
