Schedule Mgmt

Postby KaurP Sat May 12, 2018 1:13 pm

Q from Rita-If you need to shorten the duration of project, which activity would you try to shorten (see attachment)?

Critical path is C, E,H,End

Options:
Activity B
Activity D
Activity H
Activity C

Ans- If you have choice choose, all the things being equal, choose the earlier option, Therefore, Activity C is the best option.

Can you please explain what is the logic behind shortening the ‘earlier’ activity in this case.. Why not Activity ‘H’ or we just need to remember this as mentioned in exam.

Thanks!

Q 23 Rita Ed-8 Schedule Mgmt.

Question:

In the attached network diagram Critical path is C, E,H,End. If you need to shorten the duration of project, which activity would you try to shorten?

Options:
Activity B
Activity D
Activity H
Activity C

Answer description- In this case activity C and H both are on critical path. If you have choice choose, all the things being equal, choose the earlier option, Therefore, Activity C is the best option.

My question is why can't we select or shorten activity ‘H’ in this case as it is also on CP or what is the logic behind selecting the activity which appears first on critical path in such a case, as stated in answer description above.
