  • point out who is responsible for various activities.
  • pinpoint activities that need to be closely watched.
View Answer
  • Gantt charts are expensive
  • Gantt charts give a timeline and precedence relationships for each activity of a project
  • Gantt charts are visual devices that show the duration of activities in a project.
  • None of the above
View Answer
  • marks the start or completion of a task.
  • is a task or subproject that must be completed.
  • is the latest time an activity can be started without delaying the entire project.
  • is the amount of time a task may be delayed without changing the overall project completion time.
View Answer
  • Critical path is determined in PERT only
  • PERT deals with events and CPM with activities
  • Costs are considered on CPM only and not in PERT
  • Guessed times are used in PERT and evaluated times in CPM
View Answer
  • straightforward concept
  • not mathematically complex
  • It does not handle the scheduling of resource allocation
  • Both straightforward concept & not mathematically complex
View Answer
  • Every network has only one critical path.
  • Some activities on the critical path may have slack.
  • The shortest of all paths through the network is the critical path.
  • On a specific project, there can be multiple critical paths, all with exactly the same duration.
View Answer
  • They can be used only to monitor schedules
  • There is the inherent danger of placing too much emphasis on the critical path.
  • They are applicable to only a narrow variety of projects and industries
  • The graphical nature of a network delays comprehension of the activity list's interrelatiomships
View Answer
  • Prioritizes tasks
  • Allows you to compare the planned and the actual progress.
  • Helps the team stay focused on the main thing.
  • All of the above
View Answer
  • PERT and CPM are useful in monitoring costs.
  • Time estimates are subject to fudging by managers.
  • Managers only need to closely monitor the critical path.
  • PERT and CPM are useful when controlling large projects.
View Answer
  • Each activity has three estimates of its duration.
  • Only critical activities contribute to the project variance.
  • Project variance is the sum of all critical activity variances.
  • The most likely time is different from the expected activity time.
View Answer
  • identify all the project tasks
  • determine the status of all tasks
  • identify the graphical planning aids to use
  • determine the logical order of project tasks
View Answer
  • The probable time estimate is calculated as t = (a + 4m + b)/6.
  • Optimistic time estimate is an estimate of the maximum time an activity will require.
  • Optimistic time estimate is an estimate of the minimum time an activity will require.
