Network Building Blocks

We will use the components shown in Figure 7-1 as the building blocks in our schedule network. As seen there, we have the simple task, the simple path consisting of at least two tasks in tandem, the parallel paths consisting of two or more simple paths joined by a milestone, links between tasks, and milestones that begin, end, and join paths. To simplify illustrations, the milestones are often omitted and are simply implied by the logic of the network. For instance, as shown in Figure 7-2, we see the task itself serving as the starting, ending, and joining mechanism of tasks.
