Question on Crashing:

Postby Piyali Fri Aug 22, 2014 3:37 pm

"You are the project manager and working on a critical project that has strict deadline and no one can afford any schedule delay in completion. You are working on reducing the schedule duration of your project and decide to implement crashing for schedule reduction. Out of the following options which can BEST describe your approach for implementing crashing?"

A Reallocation of existing resources or assigning additional resources to the project.

B Try to overlap activities which were originally planned to be done in sequence.

C Reduce development work by reducing the number of features.

D Apply pressure to the staff and reduce duration estimates for activities.

Pretty straight forward, the answer is clearly option A

B Try to overlap activities which were originally planned to be done in sequence. - This is Fast tracking not Crashing

C Reduce development work by reducing the number of features. - This will be cutting down on scope Crashing does not cut down the scope

D Apply pressure to the staff and reduce duration estimates for activities.- Sounds weird!

Yes Answer is A

Explanation – This question is asking for definition of crashing. Crashing works by adding more resources for faster completion of a project. Crashing used to shorten the schedule duration for the least incremental cost by adding resources.
