Given is a CPM project network diagram as shown below.

 Activity Start A B C D E F G H End days 0 2 6 8 3 4 2 3 2 0

a) The Project Completion time = ___ days.

b) The Earliest Start time, ES, of Activity G = ____ days.

c) The Latest Finish time, LF, of Acitivity C = ____ days.

d) The critical activities are = ____ (ex. Fill in answer as: ABCD)

Answer : a) The Project Completion time = 19 days.

b) The Earliest Start time, ES, of Activity G = 14 days.

c) The Latest Finish time, LF, of Acitivity C = 10 days.

d) The critical activities are = ACEGH.

Explanation of finding time duration of above CPM project network diagram:

First Identify the Earliest Start time (ES) and Earliest Finish time (EF)

ES = The latest EF of the precedence activities ( (Which is directly dependent on each other)

EF = ES + Duration

For the last activity ES = LS and EF = LF

similarly , now work backward

LF = Earliest LS of the following activities (Which is directly dependent on each other)

LS = LF - Duration

All activities are critical for which ES = LS
