This paper presents an experimental investigation of the Sounds of Silence (SoS) harmony search metaheuristic for the multi-mode resource-constrained project scheduling problem (MRCPSP) using a pre-optimized starting repertoire. The presented algorithm is based on the time oriented version of the SoS harmony search metaheuristic developed by Csébfalvi et al. [1] for the single-mode resource-constrained project scheduling problem (RCPSP). The multi-mode SoS version exploits the fact that using a state-of-the art solver a small mixed integer linear programming problem (MILP) or a large linear programming problem (LP) can be solved within reasonable time. In order to illustrate the viability of the pre-optimized starting repertoire we present computational results for the hardest and largest MMLIB+ benchmark set developed by Van Peteghem and Vanhoucke [2]. The computational result reveals the fact, that the pre-optimized repertoire drastically increases the efficiency of the problem solvong process.

Existing project selection models do not consider the complexity of projects as a selection criterion, while their complexity may prolong the project duration and even result in its failure. In addition, existing models cannot formulate the aggregate complexity of the selected projects. The aggregated complexity is not always equal to summation of complexity of projects because of possible synergies or conflicts between them may increase or decrease the total complexity. In this paper, a model is proposed for measuring the aggregate complexity in the selection of project portfolios. A case study is presented to show the usefulness of the model and its applicability in practice. Moreover, several large-sized numerical examples have been tested showing the capability of the model to solve such problems in logical computational time.

In this study the challenges of managing the civil projects in oil and gas industry over recent years that failed were investigated. For this purpose, the relevant cases and their effectiveness were categorized by analyzing research data obtained from the questionnaire results. The results obtained from the research showed that there is a positive and significant relationship between the project management knowledge and reduction in the challenges. Lack of attention to the project's feasibility study before starting the project, adverse risks at the beginning and end of the projects, proper knowledge of contracts, and the project team's skill are the items that will fail the project if they are not appropriately managed. Since the team's correct design and the key persons of the project and before that feasibility and the necessity of doing it in vital projects in the country are very important and in such a way, the two components studied in this research are derived from the risk management of projects. Considering the importance of this issue as a case study, these cases were investigated in gas pipeline projects in Fars province.
