I was wondering if there is a known method to allocate resources dynamically to activities. For example, suppose that I have the following workflow:

A(2) -> B(3) // C(1)

Where A is the first activity, and B and C are activities performed in parallel. The numbers represent the cost of each activity, for a total project cost of 6.

Now, suppose that I have a budget of 10. At the beginning, A can benefit of an extra 4 for its budget. After A is finished, the remaining extra budget must be shared between B and C.

How can I do this?

Should I give more extra budget to B or to C, and how can I do it automatically?
