This paper presents a mathematical model of the UPROB (planning system for construction and overhaul) system that was developed for tank assembly lines, construction of thermal energy structures, and for performing an overhaul in complex plants. Planning technology includes utilizing linear diagrams with a direct usage of input data from a plant’s database. A model has been developed to determine the critical path and also, to define steps for the most economical shortening of the entire plan. Several plan variations are developed (according to specified goals) and the management determines the optimal variation. After selecting a plan, it is possible to control and create work orders for individual tasks in certain activities. Task completion percentage, activity cost, and the total cost of the plan are also provided.
