Resource loading after leveling

C After leveling the resoures we can see that " e " is part of the critical path.
Also, before leveling we had usage of " e " over 20, which was not acceptable.
after leveling, we can not delay any of the paths, otherwise the resourse usage will exeed 20 which mean we now have three
Critical paths instead of one.

3) One of the steps that can be taken, particularly in this project, is to level the resources. As we see in the Load diagram before leveling, the maximum usage of resource exceeds
26 and after leveling the uasge goes down to 20. Saving 6 units of rsource usage, of course, will reduce the cost and yes, reducind the cost will effect directly on the other parameteres
like performance. If the resource is for example staff member, and after 10 weeks we lay off the labors that we don't need, it will cost us more for laying off and will effect on performanc of other,
labors. But with leveling this resource we can keep the labors longer with less cost of laying off.
