Constrained resource project management heuristics are analyzed and their performance is assessed related to well defined project types. Such results have shown that using the overall performance measure of a given heuristic can, in some situations, be misleading. An efficient heuristic, which combines resource and criticality factors is also proposed. Computational experiments on a set of 6120 networks varying in size from 45-666 activities, 3 resources, and under different network parameters are reported. The proposed heuristic outperforms the best existing dispatching rules in certain project classes and also on problem sets appearing in the literature.
