Managing partner of Scott Corey accounting firm has decided that system should be up and running in 16 weeks. As a result, information about
crashing project was put together and is listed in table given below:
Activity Immediate Normal Time Crash Time Normal Cost ($) Crash Cost ($)Crash Cost/Week
Predecessor (Wks.) (Wks.)
A -- 3 2 8,000 9,800
B -- 4 3 9,000 10,000
C A 6 4 12,000 15,000
D B 2 1 15,000 15,500
E A 5 3 5,000 8,700
F C 2 1 7,500 9,000
G D, E 4 2 8,000 9,400
H F, G 5 3 5,000 6,600
(i) If project is to be finished in 16 weeks, which activity or activities must be crashed to do this at least extra cost? Determine the total cost of this?
(ii) prepare down all the paths in this network. After crashing in part (a) has been done, what is the time needed for each path? If project completion time should be decreased another week so that the total time is 15 weeks, which activity or activities must be crashed?
