PROJECT SCHEDULING

Fourth year

Production Engineering Dept.

Prepared by: Reem AlKadeem

CPM calculation

Path

Critical Path

from the starting event to the ending event

The longest path (time); determines the

project duration

Critical Activities

Forward Pass

earliest time an activity can start

ES = maximum EF of immediate predecessors

Earliest finish time (EF)

earliest time an activity can finish

earliest start time plus activity time

Backward

Pass

EF= ES +

t

Latest time an activity can start without delaying critical path time

LS= LF - t

Latest finish time (LF)

latest time an activity can be completed without delaying critical path time

LS = minimum LS of immediate predecessors

CPM analysis

Analyze the paths through the network

Determine the float for each activity

Compute the activitys float

float = LS - ES = LF - EF

Float is the maximum amount of time that this activity

can be delayed in its completion before it becomes a

critical activity, i.e., delays completion of the project

Find the critical path is that the sequence of activities

and events where there is no slack i.e.. Zero slack

Longest path through a network

Find the project duration is minimum project completion

time

Project Evaluation

Technique PERT

14

PERT

duration follows a probability distribution instead of

being a single value

Three time estimates are required to compute the

parameters of an activitys duration distribution:

pessimistic time (tp ) - the time the activity would

take if things did not go well

most likely time (tm ) - the consensus best

estimate of the activitys duration

optimistic time (to ) - the time the activity would

take if things did go well

15

tp + 4 tm + to

Mean (expected time): te =

PERT analysis

5.

Analyze the paths through the network and find the critical

path.

The length of the critical path is the mean of the project

duration probability distribution which is assumed to be normal

The standard deviation of the project duration probability

distribution is computed by adding the variances of the critical

activities (all of the activities that make up the critical path) and

taking the square root of that sum

Probability computations can now be made using the normal

distribution table.

Deterministic CPM model

Activity time estimates are subjective and depend

on judgment

PERT assumes a beta distribution for these time

estimates, but the actual distribution may be

different

PERT consistently underestimates the expected

project completion time due to alternate paths

Then the network is calculated as the
