English Abstract

Construction of repetitive projects can be scheduled efficiently by using the Linear Programming Technique. In this study, the Multiple Objective model was developed to schedule repetitive projects. The model has two conflicting objective functions. One objective function is to minimize the project cost and another to minimize the project duration. The developed model is general in its nature and it overcomes the drawbacks that a single objective model has. The output of running this model is a set of all feasible durations and the associated additional minimization cost. The model is illustrated by a project example. The project example is implemented using a computer coded algorithm which is capable of solving Multiple Objective functions problem. Finally, the model was evaluated and compared with the Traditional Network Technique (CPM)
