What are the advantages to the property developer in using critical path analysis to plan this project? Project management has developed different processes used to control the techniques better. These techniques are important in managing different complexities of project complexities such as managing data, ensuring that tights deadline is such as in highly competitive industries (Larson & Gray, 2015). One of the key techniques that are assisting in project management is scheduling techniques. It used in the sequencing activity process. The major output of sequencing, in other words, Project Time Management, is a network diagram.

They indicate how the activities are interrelated as the project starts until its completion. The network diagram helps the project manager to calculate the project duration. Through critical path analysis, the project manager will be assisted by the critical path to calculate project duration, longest estimate time and latest estimate time (PMI, 2018). The network diagrams help in organizing and planning the project activities. The network diagrams reveal the key interrelationships, and thus the project manager will manage the team effectively through planning wisely. The network diagram tool is used during the project execution since the project’s tasks are tied with their key dependencies. It is possible to show which activity will proceed after the current task is done with the use of a network diagram.
