PERT Example 7.7 The table below lists three time estimates and the immediate predecessor(s) for each activity in a construction project that is to be scheduled using PERT. The three time estimates (in weeks) are in the order: optimistic time, most likely time, and pessimistic time. (a) Draw the PERT network diagram for the project, labeling all activities and times. (b) Perform a forward pass and backward pass through the network to determine the critical path, the expected duration of the project, and the slack time for each activity. (c) What is the probability that the project will be completed within 22 weeks?

### What students are saying

• 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.

Dana University of Pennsylvania ‘17, Course Hero Intern

• 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.
