Abstract:

The purpose of this report is to show how the logistics managers of the AIM-9L program initiated and used a Critical Path Method network to monitor and control the scheduling aspects of their program. The report begins by showing the environment in which the logistics managers were operating and the rationale for the employment of a networking technique. The selection process for the particular networking technique and computer program is shown in detail with emphasis on the selection criteria employed. The construction of the network through the use of a Precedence Diagram is then delineated. The use of the network is shown through the analysis of the output reports. This is intended to provide an example of how a network was successfully initiated and used in the AIM-9L logistics program.
