(Network in the attached file)
A. Construct a schedule for the following Crash/Normal Schedule chart below:
1. Early start's for all activities
2. Late start's for all activities
3. Slacks for all activities
4. The critical path
B. Provide the following:
1.   Find the crash cost per day
2.   Which activities should be crashed to meet a project deadline of 10 days with a minimum cost? Assume partial crashing.
3.  Find the new cost
4.   Is partial crashing an appropriate assumption in this kind of project?
