In this paper, we propose a schedule revision method to enhance the project stability which is calculated based on the deviation between the actual activity starting time and the planned one. The proposed method revises the schedule by shrinking duration of the activities which start over the period in order to prevent the schedule from the activity delays. In the proposed method, the activity durations are shrunk so that the current schedule corresponds to the baseline schedule. In computational experiments, the proposed method is compared with some other revision methods in regard to the actual makespan and the activity delay. The experimental results indicate the effectiveness of the proposed method in the viewpoint of the project stability.
