Discussion Questions

1. The project network diagram has been constructed, and the project completion date is beyond the management-imposed deadline. You have compressed the schedule as much as possible by introducing parallel work through changes from FS to SS dependencies, and you still do not meet the schedule deadline. What would you do? (Hint: Use the scope triangle, discussed in Chapter 1.)

2. Even though all of your tasks have met the WBS completion criteria, what scheduling problems might prompt you to further decompose one or more of them, and how will that resolve the problems?

Case Study

Show the critical path for your project by using MS Project. (To make this work, you must make sure that you don't take any one heading in MS Project and let it go all the way through the project. If you do allow one heading to go all the way through, you can't read the critical path.)
