Identify the relationships between steps and document the dependencies between them. Determine the latest allowable start and end time or date when each step can occur without delaying the next and, subseqentaly, the whole value stream or work plan. Calculate the float value for each task. Calculate the float for each step by subtracting the early start time or date from the late time or date and assign a float value to each task and sub task. Using the information collected above, identify the critical tasks and sub tasks by determining the duration of the value stream or work plan. Chart the critical path Here in below is the chart of their event program. 11 Professional issues & Practices Sachini Perera (Batch 80) Figure 2 chart of the event program.

3.2.2 Justification of the tool/methods used for critical reasoning Once the decision and plan are made it was time to act. After making the critical path analysis chart they put the plan into action. The evaluated it to ensure that the desired results were being achieved. After finished the training program they distributed feedback form among the children and took feedback. Some have given good and some have given bad comments too. Other than their training event anyone can use critical path analysis to solve major problems in their projects and management. You are managing the construction of a shed. You have created a precedence diagram and defined the estimated duration of each activity, as shown below. Figure 3 duration of each activity To work out this event can simply add the duration of each activity. Duration of start + Duration of purchase plot + Duration of select design + Duration of purchase wood + Duration of assemble shed + Duration of end. The duration of start and end is Zero because there aren’t activities. The you have to identify the longest path and that is the critical path. From the duration calculation for chosen paths you can deduce the activities that when delayed will not impact the project. As you can see, the critical path method or critical path analysis is very useful for determining activities that can lead to project delay. 12 Professional issues & Practices Sachini Perera (Batch 80)

3.3 Process of applying critical reasoning Critical Path Analysis is a very useful tool for project managers. It helps them to focus on the key activities of a project and how they all fit together. Project managers can them allocate resources to critical activities. Critical Path Analysis is very detailed process. However, the time spent in pitting the plan together was well worth it. Careful planning meant the project ran smoothly which led to cost and time savings later on. Of course, carrying out such an analysis does not guarantee success but it certainly helps. Creating the plan enabled the people to identify improvements to ensure the project finished on time.

    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.
