Anatomy Of A Task Estimate

In order to illustrate how Critical Chain works, a simple project will be used. While the example is specific, it has general attributes that apply to every project.

In this example, a company that builds the huge towers that house communications equipment has just received a contract for a new tower. Each tower is unique since it is built to meet the specific requirements of county and state government regarding height and durability in severe weather. Other project variables include the capacity of the tower to house various communications carriers, ground preparation, fencing, wiring, and on-site staging and testing. Although unique, every tower has some components with the same basic underlying design as previous towers, so only minor modifications to design drawings are required. A highly summarized version of the project appears in Figure 22-1.
