Z = (T – TE) / (σ^2)^ 1/2 In this case.1 G = ((35-25)/6)^2 = 2. which is about 71%.4 L = ((60-20)/6)^2 = 44.2)^ 1/2 = 10 / 17.4+44.86 = 0.1 I = ((60-20)/6)^2 = 44. T = 270.1+69. .1) / 6 = 0.7 H = ((30-10)/6)^2 = 11.1+44.4)^ 1/2 Z = 10 / (319.4 D = ((100-30)/6)^2 = 136.1 + 4(0. Therefore the probability of finishing in 270 days is 71%. and TE = 260.1) + 0.TH = (10 + 4(20) + 30) / 6 = 20 TI = (20 + 4(25) + 60) / 6 = 30 TJ = (8 + 4(10) + 12) / 6 = 10 TK = (0.4 Therefore. the critical path activities are as:A–C–D–G–H–I–L = 30 + 65 + 55 + 30 + 20 + 30 + 30 = 260 Days Question 2: What is the probability of finishing in 270 days? Answer: To find probability.559 From Appendix 1. Variance for activities A-C-D-G-H-I-L can be determined as follow:Variance = ((b-a) / 6)^2 Variance for:A = ((40-20)/6)^2 = 11.

Hill can crash activity H or I. and at what costs? As noted in the case.000 Answer: If Hill wants to crash to 250 days. which has the cheapest crash cost/day. Cost of crashing to 250 days = \$15.000 The new expected path times are: A – C – D – G – H – I – L = 20 + 65 + 55 + 30 + 20 + 30 + 30 = 250 Days If crash to 240 days.500 Maximum Crash Cost 15.000 45. assume that optimistic time estimates can be used as crash time.000 20.000 4. if crash activity H.000. crash activity A = 10(\$1.
