Abstract
The report documents various methods for scheduling Capital Equipment expenditures given the priority of projects, budgetary constraints, interrelationships between projects and project time constraints. These methods consist of an integer programming approach and three heuristic methods (scheduling by priority, scheduling using resource costing, and scheduling using the dominant set of the value (benefit/cost) ratio). The underlying algorithms and models are validated and compared using a repsentative scenario.
