12) Consider the characteristics of the three types of network schedules: Program Evaluation and Review Technique (PERT), Arrow Diagram Method (ADM), and Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM). Which of the following is a true statement? [4.4.4 - Contrast the three network schedule types.] [Remediation Accessed :N] 4.4 pg. 54 of 73 PDM was developed to overcome the disadvantages of PERT and ADM, and doesn't treat all task relationships as "Finish-to-Start (FS)."
13) Which of the following components of the Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) is identified by expanding the schedule to display the Start and Finish columns? [4.5.1 - Using a simple PDM schedule format, identify the earliest and latest start and finish dates, critical path, and float (or slack).]
14) Which of the following are characteristics of the forward pass, one of the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM)? (Select three that apply.) [4.5.2 - Identify the components of the Critical Path Method (CPM).]
Results in the latest finish dates for all the tasks Continues to the last task in accordance with task relationships Begins with the first task in the schedule 15) Consider the differences between a resource-constrained schedule and a time- constrained schedule. Which constraint occurs when there is a shortage of people, equipment, facilities, or materials; and which constraint occurs when the length of the critical path surpasses the allotted time for the project? [4.6.1 - Identify the differences between a resource-constrained schedule and a time-constrained schedule.] Resource constraint, time constraint Time constraint, resource constraint Management constraint, time constraint Resource constraint, schedule constraint
16) Which of the following is a viable solution to schedule time constraint issues? [4.6.2 - Identify four solutions to time constraint issues.] [Remediation Accessed :N] 4.6 pg. 12 of 63
