Alternative methods for scheduling projects

Introduction

The main method approach for scheduling projects centres upon the use of Gantt Charts.  There are however alternative approaches. This paper examines some of the alternative approaches to project scheduling within the context of Project Management.

Improved approach incorporating uncertainty in Bayesion networks

One of the pressing problems in the production of project scheduling is how to deal with the issue of uncertainty.  The use of Bayesian Networks is a recent approach to project scheduling that has been adapted for this purpose.  Uncertainty looking across variables like time, cost and resources for each activity.  Bayesian networks will deal with both uncertainty and causality in project scheduling. This method incorporates Critical Path Analysis (CPA).  (Neil, M. 2012).
