A method is presented for resource allocation and scheduling of resource-constrained projects by use of a measure of the projects' entropy. The entropy, as a measure of the degree of disorder in a system, is an indicator of a project's tendency to progress out of order and into a chaotic condition and it can thus serve to forecast a project's development. The entropy metric used in the analysis is based on the resource assignments per activity (required vs. assigned resource units). "
