Abstract:

Meilijson and Nadas 1979 have obtained stochastic bounds in the convex majorisation sense to the critical path length of a project network with random activity durations. This paper presents those results in a more general framework and, using similar techniques, obtain bounds for shortest route, maximal flow and reliability system lifetime. Author
