Within the category of project scheduling problems, there is a specific problem within the software industry referred to as the software project scheduling problem. The problem consists in the correct allocation of employees to the different tasks that make up a software project, bearing in mind time and cost restraints. To achieve this goal, the present work first uses metaheuristic intelligent water drops illustrating; this is a recent stochastic swarm-based method increasingly used for solving optimization problems. Finally, the results and comparisons with experiments performed with other techniques are presented, demonstrating the solidity of the approach presented.
