About your homework B: 8-10—CRASHING: You have to construct a path table that includes ALL paths from start node to finish node—you have to use the heuristic I gave you in class that is in Chapter 8 of Burns B: 8-13—GOLDRATT REMOVAL OF SAFETY: You should have looked at the link to the example that was in your webpage

IDRESDUR Resource Scheduled Resource Available ESIDEF LF DUR LS SL RES SL Legend Resource-Constrained Scheduling List the order in which you scheduled the activities of the project: 2, 1, 5, 3, 4, 6 Which activities of your schedule are now critical? 2, 4, 6 Re-compute your slack for each activity given your new schedule. What is the slack for activity 1? 4? 5? 1 = (2), 4 = (0), 5 = (2)
Resource-constrained Scheduling If resources are insufficient to meet peak demand then you have a time-constrained problem, right? In a resource-constrained project what is most likely to be changed? The completion date If something has to be finished before another task can be started, that is known as a ___ constraint.
