Solution Preview

This is basically understanding the work breakdown structure.

a) critical path is the path that would lead to delays in the project. So, the path with the most amount of hrs would be the critical path.

b) The longest time....because A-B and C-D ...

Solution Summary

Undestanding how to determine the critical path, late finish, and critical chain network.
