Example: Preliminary consideration: Use Forward Pass to analyze the project network Start each activity as early as possible Objective 1 : Determine the earliest start time (ES) for each activity ES of the activity = Maximum EF of the required activity(s) Objective 2 : Determine the earliest project completion time The total project time = Maximum EF of the final activity(s) Q: To do the forward pass, what do we need to consider…? Starting Time for the project, ES for each activity, Finishing Time for the project Step 1: Construct the project network by using the AON network Step 2: Define the decision variables *Number of decision variables = Number of _____________ (including the ___________________) in a project network. Let _____ be the earliest _____________ time for a project _____ be the _____________ for the activity i (where i = A, B, C, D, E, F) _____ be the earliest _____________ time for a project Step3: Define the objective function Minimize the total project time, Z = _____________ Step4: Define the constraints *Number of constraints = Number of ______ in a project network, the Starting Time for the project and Non Negativity Subject to: (Precedence Relationship Format: ES for the following activity EF for the required activity) X Start = 0 X Start = 0 (Starting Time for the project) X ____ X Start + 0 X Start + X __ 0 (Start > A) X ____ X Start + 0 X Start + X __ 0 (Start > B) X ____ X Start + 0 X Start + X __ 0 (Start > E) X ____ X __ + __ X __ + X __ __ (A > C) X ____ X __ + __ => X __ + X __ __ (B > C) X ____ X __ + __ X __ + X __ __ (B > D) X ____ X __ + 3 X __ + X __ 3 (C > F) X ____ X __ + 8 X __ + X __ 8

### 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.

• 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.
