A manager has identified that her project has the following AON diagram of activities.

B 13 E 2

Which activities are on the critical path? B-E How long is the critical path? 15 Time Periods What is the earliest start date for Activity A? ES = 0 What is the latest start date for Activity A? LS = 6 How many periods of Slack are there? Activity A: Slack = LS ES = 6 0 = 6 Activity B: Slack = LS ES = 11 5 = 6 Activities on critical path (i.e, B and E) have slack of 0.

Note: Arrow from Y to Finish should be removed. It is not needed, as Z comes after Y. Which activities are on the critical path? X-Y-Z How long is the critical path? 19 time periods What is the earliest start date for Activity W? ES = 0 What is the latest start date for Activity W? LS = 8 How many periods of Slack are there for each Activity? Critical path activities (i.e., X, Y, Z) = 0 Activity W: Slack = LS ES = 8 0 = 8

The manager has also identified the following costs related to each of the project tasks: Activity W X Y Z Normal Time 5 13 4 2 Crash Time 3 8 3 1 Cost Per Period to Crash $200 $300 $400 $500

What is the lowest-cost way to crash the total project completion time by 1 period? Before crashing, the critical path is X-Y-Z. So, to shorten the project completion time, we must shorten (i.e., crash) either X or Y or Z. Crashing X costs us $300 per day, which is the cheapest option for shortening the critical path. So, we would choose to crash Activity X by one period. What is the lowest-cost way to crash the total project completion time by 6 periods? Initial Path Lengths W-Y = 9; W-Z = 7; X-Y = 17; X-Z = 15; X-Y-Z = 19 Cheapest way to crash: Crash Activity X to 8 periods, costing us 5 * $300 = $1500 W-Y = 9; W-Z = 7; X-Y = 12; X-Z = 10; X-Y-Z = 14 Next Step: Critical Path is still X-Y-Z. Cannot crash X any more. So, crash Activity Y by one period at a cost of $400. W-Y = 8; W-Z = 7; X-Y = 11; X-Z = 10; X-Y-Z = 13 What is the minimum project completion time (and associated crashing cost) for this project? If we crash Z by one, every activity on critical path is at minimum (crash) time. Minimum completion time is 12 periods; total crashing cost = $1500 + $400 +$500 = $2400 Lengths W-Y = 8, W-Z = 6 means that paths going through W are not critical, and we cant save any more money by crashing activity W

The manager has also identified the following costs related to each of the project tasks: Activity A B C D Y Normal Time (weeks) 5 4 2 2 10 Crash Time (weeks) 3 2 1 1 8 Cost Per Week to Crash $200 $300 $400 $500 $100

Crash this project, period-by-period, until you obtain the minimum length project. How much will this cost you to crash the project by that much? Initially, critical path is A-B-C-D. Length is 13 weeks. 1 week shorter We first shorten the critical path. Activity A is cheapest, so we spend $200 to crash A by one week. After crashing, critical path is still ABCD, but length is now 12 weeks. Total cost = $200 2 weeks shorter Activity A is still cheapest, so we spend $200 to crash A by one week. CP = ABCD; Length = 11 weeks; Total cost = $400 3 weeks shorter A cannot be crashed anymore. So, crash next cheapest = B. Costs $300. CP = Y and ABCD; Length = 10 weeks; Total cost = $700 4 weeks shorter To crash one week, must crash Y and B. Costs $100 for Y. Costs $300 for B. CP = Y and ABCD; Length = 9 weeks; Total cost = $1100 5 weeks shorter B cannot be crashed anymore. To crash one week, must crash Y and C. Costs $100 for Y. Costs $400 for C. CP = Y and ABCD; Length = 8 weeks; Total cost = $1600 Cant crash anything more Y is at its minimum completion time. 6

The manager has now identified the following probabilistic times related to each of the project tasks: Normal Time 5 13 4 2 Probabilistic Time Estimates Optimistic Time Most Likely Time Pessimistic Time to tm tp 4 5 7 10 13 20 3 4 7 1 2 5

What is the Expected Completion Time for each activity? What is the Standard Deviation of the completion time distribution for each activity? Activity W X Y Z Variance 0.25 2.78 0.44 0.44

What is the Standard Deviation of Path X-Ys completion time distribution? Var(path X-Y) = variance(X) + variance(Y) = 2.78 +0.44 = 3.22 SD(path X-Y) = sqrt(3.22) = 1.79

What is the probability that path X-Y can be completed in 18 weeks or less? z = (specified time path mean)/path standard deviation Mean(Path X-Y) = 13.67 + 4.33 = 18 z = (18 18)/1.79 = 0 From Table B in your appendix, Prob(Z < 0) = 0.50 Thus, there is approximately a 50% chance of completing the project in 18 weeks.

What is the probability that path X-Y can be completed in 25 weeks or less? z = (25 18)/1.79 = 7/1.79 = 3.91 From Table B in your appendix, Prob(Z < 3.91) = 0.9999 Thus, there is approximately a 100% chance of completing the project in 25 weeks.

What is the probability that path X-Y can be completed in 14 weeks or less? z = (14 18)/1.79 = -4/1.79 = -2.23 From Table B in your appendix, Prob(Z < -2.23) = 0.0129 Thus, there is approximately a 1.3% chance of completing the project in 14 weeks.
