1 Lecture 9 Project Scheduling: Networks, Duration Estimation, and Critical Path By : Prof. Lili Saghafi 1

2 Learning Objectives After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Understand and apply key scheduling terminology. Apply the logic used to create activity networks, including predecessor and successor tasks. Develop an activity network using Activity-on- Node (AON) techniques. Perform activity duration estimation based on the use of probabilistic estimating techniques

3 Learning Objectives After completing this chapter, students will be able to: Construct the critical path for a project schedule network using forward and backward passes. Identify activity float and the manner in which it is determined. Calculate the probability of a project finishing on time under PERT estimates. Understand the steps that can be employed to reduce the critical path

4 Project Scheduling Project scheduling requires us to follow some carefully laid-out steps, in order, for the schedule to take shape. Project planning, as it relates to the scheduling process, has been defined by the PMBoK as: The identification of the project objectives and the ordered activity necessary to complete the project including the identification of resource types and quantities required to carry out each activity or task

11 Serial Activities Serial activities are those that flow from one to the next, in sequence. FIGURE

12 Activities Linked in Parallel (Concurrent) When the nature of the work allows for more than one activity to be accomplished at the same time, these activities are called concurrent and parallel project paths are constructed through the network. FIGURE

21 Constructing the Critical Path Forward pass an additive movethrough the network from start to finish Backward pass a subtractive movethrough the network from finish to start Critical path the longest pathfrom end to end which determines the shortest project length 09-21

22 Rules for Forward/Backward Pass Forward Pass Rules (ES & EF) ES + Duration = EF EF of predecessor = ES of successor Largest preceding EF at a merge point becomes EF for successor Backward Pass Rules (LS & LF) LF Duration = LS LS of successor = LF of predecessor Smallest succeeding LS at a burst point becomes LF for predecessor 09-22

32 Summary 1. Understand and apply key scheduling terminology. 2. Apply the logic used to create activity networks, including predecessor and successor tasks. 3. Develop an activity network using Activity-on- Node (AON) techniques. 4. Perform activity duration estimation based on the use of probabilistic estimating techniques

33 Summary 5. Construct the critical path for a project schedule network using forward and backward passes. 6. Identify activity float and the manner in which it is determined. 7. Calculate the probability of a project finishing on time under PERT estimates. 8. Understand the steps that can be employed to reduce the critical path
