The paper brings together different aspects of the Critical Path Analysis exclusively in terms of the mathematical developments in this area during the last eight years. The survey is divided into seven sections. The first one deals with the four stages of development, each successive stage being more representative of the real situation. The next five sections give explicit reference to the different articles which contribute to the stages of development described in the first section. The articles are reviewed in terms of the network algebra, PERT assumptions, costtime trade off, resource allocation heuristic and resource allocation analytical. Finally, the seventh and last section of this paper provides a summary of ideas and possible directions of research, some of which are currently being undertaken.
- Administration and Management
- Economics and Cost Analysis
