Construction of a stadium: project planning

Description
  • Project planning problem modeled with linear constraints, demonstrating the effect of constraint propagation (b1stadium_ka.mos).
  • Alternative formulation as scheduling problem with precedence constraints, modeled with task objects (b1stadium2_ka.mos).
Further explanation of this example: 'Xpress Kalis User Guide', Section 5.2 Precedences
