1. Develop an estimated duration for each activity. Responses
should use the list of tasks developed in chapter 4 and include the estimated duration for each task.
2. Using a project start time of 0 (or May 15) and a required project completion time of 180 days (or November 15), calculate the ES, EF, LS, and LF times and total slack for each activity. If your calculations result in a project schedule with negative total slack, revise the project scope, activity estimated durations, and/or sequence or dependent relationships among activities to arrive at an acceptable baseline schedule for completing the project within 180 days (or by November 15). Describe the revisions you made.
3. Determine the critical path and identify the activities that make up the critical path.
4. Produce a bar chart (Gantt Chart) based on the ES and EF times from the schedule in item.
