finish time for activity
TLF = latest finish time for activity
Activity Slack = TLS - TES = TLF - TEF
* Slack is how long activity can be delayed without affecting project
* Activities on criticalpath have no slack

critical activity times and cost. You would need to know the normal time and cost in order to decrease the project duration by reducing the time of one or more critical activities to a time that is less than the normal activity time (crashing).

CriticalPath Method (CPM) is a schedule network analysis technique. CPM was developed by theDuPont Corporation in 1957.Criticalpath determines the shortest time to complete the project and itis the longest durationpath through a network of tasks. Criticaltasks (activities) are tasks (activities)on...
task I had to draw another network diagram to work out what the criticalpath was. Then I determined which activities (including all other activities) fall under the three headings: ‘Definitely Critical’, ‘Possibly Critical’, and ‘Definitely not Critical’. After undertaking this task I found that...

Schedules sometimes need to be compressed to meet promised dates or to shorten the schedule times. Crashing looks at cost and schedule trade-offs. Adding resources to criticalpathtasks and limiting or reducing the project requirements or scope are ways to crash the schedule. Fast...
