Abstract

This paper deals in a preliminary way with the problem of selecting the smallest possible number of dominant paths in a minimized project-network with given bounds on the permissible values of the durations of activities. For this purpose, a classification technique is proposed. This technique is based on a heuristic possibilistic clustering of interval-valued data. The basic concepts of heuristic possibilistic clustering are defined and methods for preprocessing interval-valued data are described. An illustrative example is considered in detail and some conclusions are formulated.
