Notation Notation d ij c = shortest achievable (crash) duration for activity (i , j). d ij n = normal duration for activity (i , j). NC ij = direct cost of activity (i, j) if performed at normal duration. CC ij = direct cost of activity (i, j) if performed at crash duration. c ij = additional direct cost of crashing activity (i, j) by one time unit. Note: CC ij = NC ij + c ij (d ij n - d ij c ) d ij = a decision variable, representing the duration of activity (i, j) With each activity (i , j) A

    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.
