What is the different between normal business activities and Project?
Unique, one time operations design to accomplish a specific set of objectives in a limited time frame.
To find the critical path, need to determine the following quantities for each activity in the network:
1. Earliest start time(ES): the earliest time an activity can begin without violation of immediate predecessor requirements.
2. Earliest finish time(EF): the earliest time at which an activity can end.
3. Latest start time(LS): the latest time an activity can begin without delaying the entire project.
4. Latest finish time(LF): the latest time an activity can end without delaying the entire project.

1CPM with Single Time Estimate
Consider the following consulting project:
Develop a critical path diagram and determine the
duration of the critical path and slack times for all
E, 5When I can start depends on when predecessors finish.
crash cost/time period =
normal time – crash timeProject Crashing with PERT/CPM: Four Steps
This process uses the following formula:
3. Select the activity on the critical path with the smallest crash cost per week.
Crash this activity to the maximum extent possible or to the point at which your desired deadline has been reached
4. Check to be sure that the critical path you were crashing is still critical.
