You are managing a heavy equipment manufacturing project that involves many mechanical, electrical as well as IT staff. Your team prepared a schedule network diagram using duration estimates with dependencies and constraints. Your team also calculated the critical path for the project using late and early values. Today, your project office has indicated about the non-availability of some of the resources you planned for the project. Now, you explore the possibility of modifying the schedule to account for limited resources. What is your best possible step in such a situation?
A. Recalculate critical path using the critical chain method B. Perform resource leveling to account for limited resources C. Use crashing or fast tracking to level resources across the project D. Apply leads and lags to develop a viable schedule
A. Recalculate critical path using the critical chain method
Emily is a first-time project manager and is analyzing a project schedule. She intends to apply resource leveling and has been given the following guidelines on resource leveling. Which of these four statements is incorrect?
A. Resource Leveling can often cause the critical path to change. B. Resource leveling is applied to a schedule before it has been analyzed by the critical path method. C. Resource leveling is applied to keep resource usage at a constant level. D. Resource leveling is necessary when resources have been over-allocated.
B. Resource leveling is applied to a schedule before it has been analyzed by the critical path method.
A project has several teams. Team A has repeatedly missed deadlines in the past. This has caused team D to have to crash the critical path several times. As the team leader for team D, you receive word that the next deadline may also be missed. You should meet with the:
A. Project Manager alone B. Project manager and Management C. Manager of Team D D. Project Manager and the leader of team A
