Abstract:

The Critical Path Method is a technique for planning and scheduling projects. A schedule shows 1 how long a project will take to complete, 2 which activities, of the network constituting the project, are critical in defining the time-length of the project, 3 when each activity can be started, and 4 the tolerance allowed in the startime of each activity. The Method is described, and also a computer program, Pegacrit 4 written by Ferranti Ltd., which applies it to projects.
