Resource-constrained critical path

Postby saket Wed Jul 16, 2014 9:43 am

PMBOK Page 178
The resource-constrained critical path is known as the critical chain.


Does this mean critical paths method of scheduling get converted in critical chain after resource leveling ?

This topic has also cleared the answer for the following question from Scordo:

Q: Accounting for the limited resources in the project schedule is called:
(A) Forward pass
(B) Critical chain method
(C) Backward Pass
(D) Critical Path Method

So , the answer is Option# (B) Critical Chain Method. :)

If you think like this after adding resources to critical path activities thru Crashing also converted from Critical Path to Critical Chain Method, is it correct?
