IELM120 Forward & Backward Pass Notation for Critical Path Method 2 t=single estimate of mean activity duration T E = earliest event occurrence time L = latest allowable event occurrence time ES=earliest activity start time EF=earliest activity finish time LS=latest allowable activity start time LF=latest allowable activity finish time S= total activity slack

IELM120 Perform a Critical Path Analysis Forward Pass (Begin at starting event and work forward) Earliest Start Time Rule: ES = ______(EF of all immediate predecessors) EF = ES + Activity time Backward Pass (Begin with the last event and work backwards) Latest Finish Time Rule: LF = ______ (LS of all immediate following activities) LS = LF – Activity time 3

IELM120 Activity Slack and Critical Path By comparing the forward & backward pass we can deduce the activity slack Activity slack (S) is the amount of delay of an activity without affecting the project finish time S = LF –EF Critical path is the path that has no slack; that is it takes the longest time to finish Critical path is important, because delay in the activities on the critical path would directly impact on overall project schedule
