When managing projects, you need to make an educated guess of how long the work is going to take so you can control the project schedule. In this course, you'll learn how to estimate activity durations and develop a project schedule for better time management.

## WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

• Identify the inputs to the estimate activity durations process
Identify tools and techniques of the estimate activity durations process
Recognize the parametric estimating formula
Recognize the three-point estimating types
Recognize examples of the outputs of the estimate activity durations process
Identify the elements of a typical project schedule
Recognize the inputs of the develop schedule process
Identify tools and techniques used for the develop schedule process
Recognize characteristics of the critical path method
• Determine start and finish dates for activities in a given network diagram
Identify techniques used to shorten overall schedule duration
Identify outputs of the develop schedule process
Perform a forward pass using the critical path method
Perform a backward pass using the critical path method
Identify the total float of each non-critical path
Identify the free float of each activity on a non-critical path
Identify the critical path and its characteristics
Recognize how to create a schedule network diagram from a table
