It's important to remain up-to-date with project management practices, so you can effectively put them to work. Examine the forward and backward pass, total float and free float, and schedule compression techniques.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN

  • 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
    Recognize if resource leveling is the ideal resource optimization technique, given a scenario
    Recognize if resource smoothing is the ideal resource optimization technique, given a scenario
    Recognize if crashing is the most appropriate schedule compression technique, given a scenario
    Recognize if fast tracking is the most appropriate schedule compression technique, given a scenario
