problem 1:
Illustrate the reasons why project planning is an iterative process and why a plan should be reviewed during the course of the software project, hence, construct a Gantt chart to represent Table below showing clearly the float for each task.
problem 2:
Consider the sequence of events in Table below. Construct a PERT chart, determining the following (justifying any assumptions made in computing the critical path):
i. Critical Path
ii. Earliest Completion Time  ECT
iii. Latest Completion Time  LCT
iv. Slacks
problem 3:
If task T5 were to extend to 40 days in duration, what effect would this have on the duration of project as a whole, hence, revise the critical path accordingly?
