Critical and non-critical paths (p16) Q1. if any.Why the probability of completing a project on time is based on the analysis of the critical path? Q2. would it be desirable to make the probability computation for a non-critical path? .In what case.

It may be desirable to consider the probability calculation for a non-critical path if the path activities have little slack. When all of these situations occur. the non-critical path may have a probability of completion on time that is less than the critical path. A2. or the path activity times have relatively high variances. The non-critical paths should have a higher probability of being completed on time. . if the path completion time is nearly the same as the critical path completion time.Critical path is the longest path and generally will have the lowest probability of being completed by the desired time.Critical and non-critical paths (p16) A1.

• Use word processor for all assignments and course works .Project teams • Form teams of 3 members • Give your team a name or a number • Try to sit close to your team members to do team assignments • Brainstorm and finalize project topic • Write up your project proposal and hand it in by next week.
