1 CPM-: Principles of Schedule Management Lesson B: Critical Path Scheduling Techniques Instructor Jim Wrisley IPM Fall Conference PMI-College of Performance Management Professional Education Program Copyright All Rights Reserved

2 Lesson Objectives - TLO #: The student will understand the evolution of network scheduling, be able to differentiate between two () primary types of network scheduling methods and understand the value of resource loading the network. ELO #: The student will recognize the evolution of PERT Scheduling. ELO #: The student will be able to recognize and the Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) type schedule. ELO #: The student will recognize the value of resource loading a schedule. Copyright All Rights Reserved

3 Lesson Objective - TLO #: The student will understand how to create and analyze a PDM type schedule. ELO #: The student will be able to recognize and use the PERT Formula for calculating durations. ELO #: The student will be able to define the use of : Finish-to-Start, Start-to-Start, Finish-to-Finish, relationships. ELO #: The student will be able to define and calculate: critical path, and total float on a PDM Schedule. Copyright All Rights Reserved

4 Lesson Outline Reviewing History of Network Scheduling PERT Durations Present Three Major Types of Network Schedule Estimating Techniques and Associated Terminologies Demonstrate Network Computations Discuss the Importance of Resource Leveling Discussion Copyright All Rights Reserved

6 The History of Network Scheduling PERT Scheduling U.S. Navy Special Projects Office Polaris Missile Program 9 Critical Path Method Remington-Rand and Dupont Chemical processing 9 - Activity-on-Node (AON) also known as Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) --- Most Popular - Activity-on-Arrow (AOA) also known as Arrow Diagramming Method (ADM) Copyright All Rights Reserved

7 Critical Path Method (CPM) Estimating Method An Activity receives a Single Point Estimate instead of the required by PERT. Hence no formula is needed. Example: Estimated Duration = days Copyright All Rights Reserved

8 Program Evaluation Review Techniques (PERT) Estimating Method The PERT Formula Uses a Point Estimate Pessimistic + xmost Likely + Optimistic Given: P = days M= days O = days + + = =. Copyright All Rights Reserved

9 Monte Carlo Simulations Estimating Method Monte Carlo Simulations uses PERT s Point Estimates as basis. But it does not use the PERT formula. This statistical technique utilizes a computer to simulate the outcome of a project. It will give you the probability of completing the project on any given day! Copyright All Rights Reserved

10 Pros and Cons of Estimating Methods CPM: Easiest to use. Many experts believe it is the least accurate predictor. PERT: More sophisticated and requires more thought. Many experts believe it is more accurate than CPM. Monte Carlo Simulations: Most sophisticated. Many experts believe it is the best prediction technique Copyright All Rights Reserved 9

11 Basic Scheduling Terms Critical Path: Longest path through Project. Has no slack. Slack (Float): The amount of time an activity can be delayed without delaying the project. Lag: Inserted waiting time between tasks. Estimating Methods: (CPM, PERT, Monte Carlo) Resource Leveling: Allows a more stable number of resources to be used on the project. Crashing The Schedule: Adding more resources to the Critical Path Fast Tracking: Doing more tasks in parallel. Copyright All Rights Reserved

12 The Goals Of Project Management: to make the most effective use of available resources such as: People Equipment Facilities Materials Money Technology so that project objectives and goals can be achieved: Within budget On schedule To the desired quality Copyright All Rights Reserved

15 Task Durations (Estimates) Developed for each activity Developed by best available authority Generally assumes normal conditions (manpower, equipment, calendar, etc.) CAUTION: - Over- Estimating Tendencies Copyright All Rights Reserved

22 Why Calculate The Network? Establish ES & EF dates and project duration Calculate LF & LS dates based on project completion Defines Float Copyright All Rights Reserved

23 Float (Leeway Or Slack) Amount of time an activity can be delayed before it impacts Project Completion Calculated by comparing LF to EF A = days "Float" Also called Total/Path/Shared Float Copyright All Rights Reserved

29 Why We Resource Load Networks Assignment of resources (people, equipment, facilities, materials, etc.) to each activity within the project Comparison of Needs vs. Availability Resulting Profiles (Histograms) Cumulative Plots (S-Curves) Other descriptive terms: Resource Allocation Resource Leveling Resource Scheduling Resource Smoothing Copyright All Rights Reserved

30 We Develop A Staffing Plan Because... During Critical Path Method (CPM) schedule development, the assumption has been that unlimited manpower, material and equipment are available This OFTEN is not true The availability of resources has a direct bearing on the duration of each activity.

47 Should I Resource Load My Schedule? Pros: Tight integration of schedules and budgets Visibility of resource requirements by skill category Facilitates enterprise-wide resource planning Ease of what if modeling during the planning phase Facilitates recovery planning Cons: Requires expert scheduling capabilities (software & personnel) Over reliance on software tools instead of resource managers Some resources are more critical than others Benefits diminished if not done on an enterprise-wide basis Copyright All Rights Reserved
