This research discusses constrained consumable resource allocation problem in special kinds of GERT-type networks (GTN). The Networks have only EXCLUSIVE-OR, PROBABILISTIC nodes. They don’t have any loops. They have one source node and they can have more than one target nodes. Also, durations of activities are random variables with known probability density functions. A certain type of consumable resource is necessary for executing the activities. A new heuristic algorithm has been developed to achieve this purpose. Finally, three examples have been solved using the proposed method.
