AbstractThis paper describes how we use Genetic Programming (GP) techniques to help project managers find near optimal designs for their project organizations. Our GP model is a postprocessor optimizer for the Virtual Design Team (VDT), a project organization design simulator also developed at Stanford. Decision making policy and individual/sub-team properties are varied by GP, and the effect on quality and duration of the project is compared via a fitness function. The solutions found by GP compare favorably with the best human generated designs.
