The idea of this model is to represent the activities as arcs of an acyclic digraph D with the aim to apply digraph algorithms that work with edge weights such as longest path algorithms (to compute the project duration and the critical paths) or flow algorithms (to compute resource requirements or maximum weighted 35 antichains). However, only a subclass of all partial orders (and thus only special project structures) can be represented in this way. They are known as N-free partial orders (older names are quasi-series parallel, graph-type or chain-antichain-complete) and may be characterized by the fact that the Hasse diagram contains no N as induced subgraph, or, equivalently by the fact that every maximal chain has a non-empty intersection with every maximal antichain (= set of pairwise incomparable elements), for an overview on this class of partial orders, see [Mb5] and [HM].

Denotes the associated n' *& 3 3 3 cost. total 45 The main interest then concerns the following two problems: 1. Determination of the minimal cost function H(t): Given a fixed time limit t for the project duration, what is the least cost H(t) for achieving this task? 2. Determination of the minimal time function H (k): Given yen a fixed budget b, what what is the shortest possible project duration H (b) obtainable with this budget? g. if all k. behaves similarly. In fact, under cer- are strictly monotonically decreasing and convex functions on closed intervals [BR]) H is the inverse function of H.

4. TIME-COST TRADEOFF IN PROJECT NETWORKS So far, we have only considered project networks with fixed (and known) processing times. A relaxation of this model that is still deterministic (and assumes complete information and control of possible processing times) is obtained by permitting processing times to vary according to certain (financial) efforts that are controlled by the planner. These efforts can be interpreted as a non-reusable (or non-renewable) resource that can be allocated to any job in any amount with the effect that a higher allocation to a job a reduces its processing time.
