Durations were based on three estimates of time (optimistic, pessimistic/ most likely). These three estimates were ‘weighted’ and an activity’s duration was established. (Optimistic + (4x likely) + Pessimistic) / 6 Text is unclear is a CPM was calculated for Navy Project. Dupont / Remington Rand Plant Project CPM was an integral part of the overall schedule network. Calculations to determine the critical path will identify the: Longest path of activities within the schedule Shortest amount of time to complete the project.
