Abstract:

The role of critical path network analysis in project management is discussed. Specific shortcomings of conventional, deterministic network analysis techniques are outlined and examples are given of the individual factors which contribute to the overall optimism of deterministic analysis. Computer simulation is offered as means of developing realistic schedules, budgets and resource requirements for projects where uncertainty and performance variability are of significance. Author
