  abstract =     "A range of minimization methods exist enabling
                 planners to tackle tough scheduling problems. We
                 compare three scheduling techniques representative of
                 old or standard technologies, evolving technologies,
                 and advanced technologies. The problem we address
                 includes the complications of scheduling long-term
                 upgrades and refurbishments essential to maintaining
                 expensive capital assets. We concentrate on the costs
                 of being able to do maintenance work. Using a standard
                 technology as the baseline technique, Constraint
                 Programming (CP) produces a 50-yr maintenance approach
                 that is 31percent less costly. Genetic Programming
                 produces an approach that is 60percent less costly",
