This paper suggests heuristic algorithm with O(m) linear time complexity for choice of expansion projects that can`t be obtain the optimal solution using linear programming until now. This algorithm ascending sort of net profit for all projects. Then, we apply a simple method that deletes the project with minimum net profit until this result satisfies the carried over for n-years more than zero value. While this algorithm using simple rule, not the linear programing fails but the proposed algorithm can be get the optimal solution for experimental data.
