This paper focuses on the application of heuristic approach in solving scheduling problems of ongoing project. This study is primarily aimed at providing a suitable heuristic for finding an optimum resource level, which ought to be kept over the project execution period, and a sensitivity analysis of which resource type ought to be increased in order to reduce the project completion time towards the ultimate. The use of resource utilization and a “constraining index” in the search for optimal solutions to this problem of meeting delivery date requirements, and optimize utilization of multiple resources in project and minimize other resources.
