An equivalent problem can be fonnulated if it is assumed that for each activity a set of alternatives discrete modes [Multi-mode assumlltion] is available instead of a continuous function C(i) = f (D(i»: [C(i),D(i)]k with k=l, ... , K (i). The general problem of project scheduling now can be formulated as a decision making problem with: a) ti and k (i) for i = 1, ...

This rate corresponds to the mllrginlll rllte of return for the studied economy and so a. can be considered as an opportunity cost (how much was the value not generated during one year by that unit of capital which was spent on the project). Alternatively, the owner of the project may need to borrow the required capital and then a. will be defined in terms of the corresponding interest rate adopted for this type of project. For instance, assuming a. 09 ). This means that long tenD effects are poorly represented by financial analysis tending to ignore impacts above 20 or 25 years.
