Refer to pages 197-201 for guidance - Those are attached.
(Refer to the project shown in Figure 5-10 (see page 156). The facility used by activities "c" and "d" is scarce. Given the following priority rules, which activity ("c" or "d") would you assign the facility first?)
Refer to pages 217-218 for guidance - Attached
Given the following priority rules, which activity ("c" or "d") would you assign the facility first?
Minimum slack first: Activity c - or - d
Most followers (successors) : Activity c - or - d
Most critical followers: Activity c - or - d
Shortest task duration first: Activity c - or - d
As late as possible: Activity c - or - d.
The solution determines the completion time of a project with activities included.
