Summary Of Operation

The three examples given are, of course, very small simple programmes, but they do show the steps that have to be taken to get the best out of network analysis. These are:

1 Draw up a list of activities and anticipated durations;

2 Make as many activities as possible run in parallel;

3 Examine new sequences after the initial network has been drawn;

4 Start a string of activities as early as possible and terminate as late as possible;

5 Split activities into two or more steps if necessary;

6 If time is vital, reduce durations by paying more for extra resources;

7 Always look for new techniques in the construction or operation being programmed.

It is really amazing what savings can be found after a few minutes' examination, especially after a good night's sleep.
