The following details are available regarding a project:

Determine the earliest and latest times, the total float for each activity, the critical activities and the project completion time.

With the given data, we construct the following network diagram for the project.

Consider the paths, beginning with the start node and stopping with the end node. There are four such paths for the given project. They are as follows:

Compare the times for the four paths. Maximum of {51, 50, 47, 61} = 61.

We see that the maximum time of a path is 61 weeks.

Calculation of Earliest Expected Time of Occurrence of Events

Using the above values, we obtain the Earliest Start Times of the activities as follows:

Calculation of Latest Allowable Time of Occurrence of Events

Using the above values, we obtain the Latest Finish Times of the activities as follows:

Project completion time = 61 weeks.

The following are the details of the activities in a project:

Calculate the earliest and latest times, the total float for each activity and the project completion time.

The following network diagram is obtained for the given project.

Consider the paths, beginning with the start node and stopping with the end node. There are three such paths for the given project. They are as follows:

Calculation of Earliest Time of Occurrence of Events

Calculation of the Latest Allowable Time of Occurrence of Events

The activities with total float = 0 are A, B, D, F and G. They are the critical activities.

Consider a project with the following details:

Determine the earliest and latest times, the total float for each activity, the critical activities, the slacks of the events and the project completion time.

The following network diagram is got for the given project:

We see that the maximum time of a path is 58 weeks.

Calculation of Earliest Time of Occurrence of Events

Calculation of Latest Allowable Time of Occurrence of Events

The activities with total float = 0 are A, B, F, H, J and K. They are the critical activities.

Project completion time = 58 weeks.

Slack of an event = Latest Allowable Time of Occurrence of the event - Earliest Expected Time of Occurrence of that event.

On the basis of the slacks of the events, it is concluded that the occurrence of event 4 may be delayed upto a maximum period of 2 weeks while no other event cannot be delayed.
