PROJECT MANAGEMENT
 Defined as the processes required ensuring timely completion of a project.  Involves the following processes: A. Activity Definition B. Activity Sequencing C. Activity duration estimating D. Schedule development E. Schedule control

A. ACTIVITY DEFINITION
 Results in the project team developing a more detailed WBS and supporting explanations  Ensure that the project team has complete understanding of all the work they must do as part of the project scope

B. ACTIVITY SEQUENCING
 Involves reviewing the activities in the detailed WBS, detailed product descriptions, assumptions, and constraints to determine the relationship between activities  Involves evaluating the reasons for dependencies and the different types of dependencies  Dependency Also called relationship, shows the sequencing of project activities or tasks

B. ACTIVITY SEQUENCING
 Reasons for creating dependencies: Mandatory dependencies – (hard logic), inherent in the nature of work being done on a project Discretionary dependencies – are defined by the project team External dependencies – involve relationships between project and non-project activities

PROJECT NETWORK DIAGRAMS
 The preferred technique for showing activity sequencing  Schematic display of logical relationships among, or sequencing of project activities  Uses the activity-on-arrow (AOA) or the arrowdiagramming method (ADM) A=1 1 B=2 2 3 4 G=6 D=4 E=5 5 F=4 H=6 6 I=2 J=3 8

EXAMPLE
Activity A B C D E F G H I J Initial Node 1 1 1 2 3 3 4 5 7 6 Final Node 2 3 4 5 5 6 7 6 6 8 Estimated Time 1 2 3 4 5 4 6 6 2 3

PROJECT NETWORK DIAGRAMS
 Steps in creating an AOA Network Diagram Find all of the activities that start at Node 1. Draw the finish nodes, and draw arrows between Node 1 and each of those finish nodes. Put the activity letter or name of the associated arrow. If you have a duration estimate, write that next to the activity letter...
