You have created the following schedule:
Task A starts immediately and takes 4 days. Task B starts after
A finishes and takes 4 days, Task C starts after B finishes and
takes 6 days. Tasks D starts after A finishes and takes 9 days.
Task E also starts after A finishes and takes 12 days. Task F
starts when C, D, and E finish and takes 3 days.
Your sponsor has asked you to compress the schedule as much as
possible. You have determined you can reduce the B’s duration by 2
days by crashing, C’s duration by 3 days by working overtime, and
D’s duration by 4 days by using a more efficient design process.
Which of the following would you choose?
a. Reduce the duration of both C and D as both are good methods
and you would save 7 days
b. Reduce the duration of B because crashing is the most
c. None of the choices
d. Reduce the duration of C because overtime is typically less
expensive than crashing
