Scheduling is becoming much more important in every industry. However, the standard RCSP usually does not cover all the characteristics of real world problems. In this work, we present an Event Based MILP formulation for a Multimode Resource Constraint Scheduling Problem of direct application for some industries, as aeronautical assembly lines. Taking as a starting point one of the last MILP formulations for standard RCSP, our contribution is to provide a formulation which covers the multimode case and more general temporal constraints than the ones usually referred to in the literature.
