Vogel’s Approximation Method (VAM) Since the aggregate supply is 220 units and the aggregate demand is 200 units.HARVINDER SINGH (MCA – 4th Semester) ) Roll Number . for an amount equal to 20 (the difference between the aggregate supply and demand). The initial solution obtained by VAM is degenerate. CPM was developed by Du Pont and the emphasis was on the trade off between the cost of the trade-off project and its overall completion time (e. Ans: Various Methods for finding initial solution to a transportation problem 1. Write down the differences between PERT and CPM. (6 30) + (1 10) + (3 20) + (0 50) + (7 60) + (1 30) = 700.

In addition PERT had the ability to cope with uncertain activity completion times (e. Project Planning. 2. 3. Since CPM was developed in connection with a construction project which consisted of routine tasks whose resources requirement and duration was known with certainty. 1. CPM: 1. 2.511025273 http://www. for a particular activity the most likely completion time is 4 weeks but it could be anywhere between 3 weeks and 8 weeks). Project scheduling by PERT-CPM: It consists of three basic phases: planning. In PERT. PERT: 1. PERT was developed by the US Navy for the planning and control of the Polaris missile program and the emphasis was on completing the program in the shortest possible time. total project duration is regarded as a random variable and therefore associated probabilities are calculated so as to characterize it. 2. Since PERT was developed in connection with an R and D work.g. Scheduling. CPM is used for projects involving activities of repetitive nature. scheduling and controlling. 3. It helps in pinpointing critical areas in a project so that necessary adjustment can be made to meet the scheduled completion date of the project. 4. It is an event-oriented network because in the analysis of network emphasis is given important stages of completion of task rather than the activities required to be performed to reach to a particular event or task. . 3.HARVINDER SINGH (MCA – 4th Semester) Roll Number .for the jobs of repetitive in nature where the activity time estimates can be predicted with considerable certainty due to the existence of past experience. PERT is normally used for projects involving activities of non-repetitive nature in which time estimates are uncertain.com/Harvinder_chauhan USED IN: Production management . therefore it had to cope with the uncertainties which are associated with R and D activities. CPM is suitable for establishing a trade-off for optimum balancing between schedule time and cost of the project. therefore it is basically deterministic.scribd. Project Control. Basic difference between PERT and CPM: Though there are no essential differences between PERT and CPM as both of them share in common the determination of a critical path and are based on the network representation of activities and their scheduling that determines the most critical activities to be controlled so as to meet the completion date of the project.

The Network Diagram In a project.HARVINDER SINGH (MCA – 4th Semester) ) Roll Number . an activity is a task that must be performed and an event is a milestone marking the completion of one or more activities. some of which must be performed sequentially and others that can be performed in parallel with other activities.511025273 http://www. Incrementing the numbers by 10allows for new ones to be inserted without modifying the numbering of the entire diagram. Project network models represent activities and milestones by arcs and nodes. some people began to use PERT as an activity on node network. PERT was developed in the late 1950's for the U. CPM is a deterministic method that uses a fixed time estimate for each activity. It has the potential to reduce both the time and cost required to complete a project. The following is a very simple example of a PERT diagram: PERT Chart The milestones generally are numbered so that the ending node of an activity has a higher number than the beginning node. Explain Project Management (PERT). variations that can have a great impact on the completion time of a complex project. Ans: PERT: Complex projects require a series of activities. Navy's Polaris project having thousands of contractors. For this discussion. The Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT) is a network model that allows for randomness randomne in activity completion times. Over time. PERT activities originally was an activity on arc network. This collection of series and parallel tasks can be modeled as a network . in which the activities are represented on the lines and milestones on the nodes. The activities in the above diagram are labeled with letters along with the expected time required to complete the activity. it does not consider the time vity. all of its predecessor activities must be completed.com/Harvinder_chauhan 5. we will use the original form of activity on arc.In 1957the Critical Path Method (CPM) was developed as a network model for project management. ion.
