CHANGES IN PROJECT PARAMETERS 2 Abstract This paper discusses the probability of project being completed within 32 weeks or less given that expects duration is 34 weeks and critical path variance is 6. The paper also discusses the process of shortening project duration. In addition, the paper also discusses project cost and application in production and how changes in project parameters affect cost and timing. Mean µ = 34 and standard deviation (square root of variance) δ = 2.4495. P (X<32) =P (X−μ<32−34) =P ( X μ δ < 32 34 2.4495 ) Z = -0.82 P(x<32) = p (z < -0.82) P(x <-0.82) = 0.2061 Probability is therefore 0.2061 A critical path can be used to determine the efficient and shortest project duration. This technique involves calculating duration of every path in the project. This technique helps one to identify where to add resources to reduce project duration (Larson, Gray, & Gray, 2011). To

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
