This thesis details a new method of scheduling project activities in project-oriented production system can be characterized as a part of the hierarchical planning and scheduling process in which an aggregate planning level allocates resources among projects of the production system and specifies major due dates of project executions. The goal of project scheduling is to minimize the project completion time subject to resource capacities and due dates which are specified by the aggregate planning level. Resource capacities for a particular project are time varying but inflexible at any particular time. The method of scheduling aims to reflect the characteristics of work in ship overhauls in a shipyard which is believed to be a typical example of a project oriented production system. The method is designed to be computationally feasible and managerially practical. Although there are various methods and techniques for project scheduling which have been proposed in the literature, none fulfills the needs posed by the shipyards scheduling problem.
