This paper deals with the problem of scheduling project tasks under uncertainty and with limited resources. In this context and under an EVM-driven project control, we formulate a risk-aware scheduling model as a Markov Decision Process, and then we derive a simple index rule using Whittle approach. By means of this method we obtain a metric per-task state that measures the dynamic service priority of a single task; it consists in allocating resources to the tasks with the current highest productivity of using the resource. The designed scheduling solution is evaluated in a realistic scenario. The results indicate that the proposed index rule improves project performance.
