13-16 Monohan Machinery specializes in developing weedharvesting
equipment that is used to clear small lakes
of weeds. George Monohan, president of Monohan
Machinery, is convinced that harvesting weeds is far
better than using chemicals to kill weeds. Chemicals
cause pollution, and the weeds seem to grow faster
after chemicals have been used. George is contemplating
the construction of a machine that would harvest
weeds on narrow rivers and waterways. The activities
that are necessary to build one of these experimental
weed-harvesting machines are listed in the following
table. Construct a network for these activities.
