A Hybrid Technique for Software Project Scheduling and Human Resource Allocation
A. Avinash,  Dr. K. Ramani
Project planning plays a crucial role in software project implementation and to minimize the cost. The existing models suffer from a large search space and lack of flexibility in human resource allocation to simplify the model. In the proposed model, the tasks identification and scheduling is implemented using Event-Based Scheduler (EBS) and efficiency of employees and allocation of tasks is done through Ant Colony Optimization (ACO). Through EBS, beginning and ending of the tasks can be considered as events and it enables optimized resource utilization. The Task Precedence Graph obtained through ACO is used to find shortest path which reflects most suitable employee for the given task. Combining EBS and ACO techniques together will minimize the search space for employee allocation and hence the cost of the given project. The experimental results show that the proposed method is efficient and effective.
