B. the stochastic learn of the gains of initiatives resembling the length and value in their actions is conducted by means of numerous analytical and numerical versions, permitting experimental and forecasting analyses. C. the allocation of assets should be now studied for extra complicated events and regulations. D. the monetary description of tasks is extra effectively studied and its optimization is carefully pursued. E. the evaluation and the evaluate of tasks now could be studied in the framework of multicriteria choice idea contemplating a number of views and assisting the undertaking supervisor to choose the main applicable compromises among probability, time and anticipated gains.

Tills means that an indicator to measure this type of difficulty (project hardness) can be proposed: H=~~N(i) Ni=l where N(i) is the total number of activities preceding i. Then. H represents the average number of precedent activities for each activity of the project network.

N. It should be noted that the parallel case is also the easiest one because any implementation problem concerning one activity does not affect the scheduling of the other activities and the serial case is the other extreme case.
