Unformatted text preview: E ), c) latest completion time (T L ), and d) slack time for all activities. (Fill in table above; Draw the network (1 pt); no need to repeat the numbers you fill in above on the network.) 2. What is the critical path for this project? (1 pt) 3. What would happen to the overall project schedule if the screen design activity takes 4 weeks instead of 1 week (assuming nothing else changes)? (0.5 pts) 4. What would happen to the overall project schedule if the programming activity takes 6 weeks instead of 4 weeks (assuming nothing else changes)? (0.5 pts) 5. Construct a GANTT chart for the above project (Figure 1). The GANTT chart does not need to distinguish between critical and non-critical activities (3 pts)...
