Consider the following set of activities:
- Draw an AON network diagram with ES, EF, LS, LF, D, S
- Identify the total project duration in workdays
Identify the critical path
Calculate Pert estimate for the following activities
You have evaluated your project and have developed the following earned value table from your analysis.
- Determine the project status by calculating CV, CPI, SV, and SPI for each task and for the project overall.
- What is the analysis of how the project is doing from these indicators?
The project has over budget (CPI < 1);
And has a ahead of schedule, (SPI > 1).
Find the critical path and slack for each activity.
