Slack: - total slack : the amount of time that an activity can be delayed without affecting the project completion time -mathematical difference between LS and ES, or LF-EF -total slack shows impact on the finish date of the entire project - free slack : the amount of time an activity can be delayed without affecting the early start of the very next activity -for ending activities: (Project completion time-EF) -for non-ending: Min[ES of follower (s)]- EF(the activity) -free slack shows impact on early start time for the immediate successor NOTE: an activity will only have free slack when its immediate successor (next activity) has more than one immediate predecessor (more than one activity before it) For a given activity, free slack cannot exceed the total slack Crashing projects: -reducing project duration time for the least cost -start with the critical path -look for possible crash (cheapest activity) -note: what if multiple critical paths exist? Look for common activities and choose the cheapest -when do we stop crashing? -when ALL critical paths=< desired length Chapter 15: Inventory Management Types of inventories : -raw material (dep.) -WIP (dep.) -Finished goods (ind.) Purposes of inventory : -to protect against uncertainties -to allow economic production and purchase (economies of scale) -to cover anticipated changes in demand or supply -to provide for transit Cost of inventory : -item cost (cost of buying or producing)—C
