14) One of the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM) involves moving from the first task through the network to the last task, while adhering to task relationships. This method results in the earliest start and finish dates for all the tasks. This describes which of the following components? [4.5.2 - Identify the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM).] Forward pass Backward pass Critical path Total float 15) Consider the differences between a time-constrained schedule and a resource- constrained schedule. Which constraint occurs due to limitations imposed by the length of time or dates in a schedule, and which constraint occurs when the number and/or type of support required is greater than the number available? [4.6.1 - Identify the differences between a resource-constrained schedule and a time-constrained schedule.]
16) Which schedule time constraint solution is best used when the project has some flexibility in the end date and a longer time to complete the project can be accommodated? [4.6.2 - Identify four solutions to time constraint issues.]

17) Which of the following is a viable solution to a schedule resource constraint?
Identify four possible methods for working with resource constraints.]
18) A proposal manager asks the team to provide "80%" estimates for their schedule. The team believes that they have an 80% chance of finishing on time, when in reality, they do not. In this example, the team clearly does not take into account the overall uncertainty of the program. Which of the following causes for schedule risks and delays is being described? [4.7.1 - Identify the potential causes for schedule risks and delays.] Uncertainty in task duration estimates Unrealistic milestones or deadlines Incorrect schedule relationships or logic Inability to change the number of tasks
19) Prior to using the 14-Point Schedule Metrics, the total number of tasks with "Actual Finish" dates needs to be calculated. This describes which of the following data types? [4.8.1 - Choose the type of data that needs to be calculated in preparation for using 14-Point Schedule Metrics.]
