Successful project management involves effective plan schedule management. Performing a critical path analysis is a proven way to create a strong, workable project schedule. In this course, you'll learn about the critical path method and the use of project schedule network diagrams. You'll explore aspects of planning like total and free float, leads, lags, and forward and backward passes. Finally, you'll learn to properly sequence activities for maximum efficiency and success. 

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • discover the key concepts covered in this course
    identify the elements of a typical project schedule
    identify tools and techniques used to develop the schedule
    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
  • perform a forward pass using the critical path method
    perform a backward pass using the critical path method
    identify the total float of each noncritical path
    identify the free float of each activity on a noncritical path
    identify the critical path and its characteristics
    recognize how to create a schedule network diagram from a table
