There is a certain "asymmetry" between the feasibility conditions - which are comparability invariant since they only depend on the antichains of 9 - and the objective K(0,X) - which may differ for partial order with the same comparability graph. This asymmetry is eliminated if we restrict attention to comparability invariant performance measures K, which means that K(9,X) =K(Q',X) for all Q,Q' with G(9) = G(9').

At each step, the objective value K ( 0 , X ) of the current partial order 0 is used as a lower bound for the subset of the feasibility domain induced by 0. This is combined with suitable data structures that guarentee the construction of the current partial order and the necessary updating in 0(|v| ) time and space, cf. [Ra2,Ra3,Bal,Ba2,BMRl]. e. do not exo ploit the knowledge (cf. 3) that a restriction to interval orders is possible. This may have its reason in the fact that the subset of all interval orders of E(0 ) does not seem to have structural properties that lend themselves for fast search techniques.

Etc, and are general enough to allow also for preference terms, real cost terms, milestones and many other cost terms occuring in industrial applications . Schedules are subject to two types of constraints, temporal constraints and resource constraints. In the basic model, there are only temporal constraints of the form C. e. certain jobs a. may only start after the completion of other jobs a.. e. has no solution) or describes an acyclic relation
