time is expected rarely to be less than the optimistic time or more than the pes simistic time. (More on this matter shortly.)

As described earlier, we start the network by finding those activities that hav no predecessors. In the table activities a, b, and c meet the test. Therefore, they ca all be drawn emerging from our starting node.

Next, we look for activities that only require a, b, or c, or some combination a, b, and c, to precede them. Activity d requires that a be completed, and e, f, an g all require that b and c be completed. Note that a dummy will be necessary u less we begin the network from separate nodes for b and c. Last, h requires that c be completed. To this point, the network might look like Figure 8-12.
