**Example: Frank’s Fine Floats**

Frank’s Fine Floats is in the business of building elaborate parade floats. Frank and his crew have a new float to build and want to use PERT/CPM to help them manage the project. The table on the next slide shows the activities that comprise the project. Each activity’s estimated completion time (in days) and immediate predecessors are listed as well. Frank wants to know the total time to complete the project, which activities are critical, and the earliest and latest start and finish dates for each activity.

Determining the Critical Path A critical path is a path of activities, from the Start node to the Finish node, with 0 slack times. Critical Path: A – C – E – G The project completion time equals the maximum of the activities’ earliest finish times. Project Completion Time: days

**Example Problem Solution (3 of 4)**

Step 3: Identify the critical path and compute expected completion time and variance. Critical path (activities with no slack): 1 3 5 7 Expected project completion time: tp = = 24 days Variance: vp = 4 + 4/9 + 4/9 + 1/9 = 5 (days)2 Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc.

**Example Problem Solution (4 of 4)**

Step 4: Determine the Probability That the Project Will be Completed in 28 days or less (µ = 24, = 5) Z = (x - )/ = (28 -24)/5 = 1.79 Corresponding probability from Table A.1, Appendix A, is and P(x 28) = = Copyright © 2010 Pearson Education, Inc. Publishing as Prentice Hall
