Section 3 Project Scheduling 1) Gantt charts give a timeline for each of a project's activities, but they do not adequately illustrate the interrelationships between the activities and the resources. Answer: TRUE Key Term: Gantt charts Objective: LO1 2) PERT, but not CPM, has the ability to consider the precedence relationships in a project. Answer: FALSE Objective: LO1

7 3) A combination of effective Gantt chart use and other tactics allowed Delta to cut the average time for a plane layover by what % of the original 60 minute duration? A) 33%, to 40 minutes B) 50%, to 30 minutes C) 20%, to 48 minutes D) 25%, to 45 minutes E) 40%, to 36 minutes Answer: A Key Term: Gantt charts AACSB: Analytic skills Objective: LO1 4) Which of the following statements regarding Gantt charts is true?

C) Gantt charts are visual devices that show the duration of activities in a project. D) Gantt charts are expensive. E) All of the above are true. Answer: C Key Term: Gantt charts Objective: LO1 5) Identify each of the purposes of project scheduling. Answer: Project scheduling shows the relationship of each activity to others and to the whole project. It identifies the precedence relationship among activities. It encourages the setting of realistic time and cost estimates for each activity. It helps make better use of people, money, and material resources by identifying critical bottlenecks in the project. Diff: 3 6) Describe the differences between a Gantt chart and a PERT/CPM network.

Answer: Prior to beginning actual construction, regulatory and funding issues added, as they do with most projects, substantial time to the overall project. Cities have zoning and parking issues, the EPA has drainage and waste issues, and regulatory authorities have their own requirements, as do issuers of bonds. Diff: 3 Section 5 Project Management Techniques: PERT and CPM 1) The shortest of all paths through the network is the critical path. Answer: FALSE Key Term: Critical path Objective: LO4 2) The fundamental difference between PERT and CPM is that PERT uses the beta distribution for crashing projects while CPM uses cost estimates.

C) both are acceptable in practice; however, Microsoft Project uses AON. D) nodes designate activities in AON, while arrows designate activities in AOA. E) All of the above are true. Key Term: Activity-on-node (AON) Objective: LO2 5) A simple CPM network has five activities, A, B, C, D, and E. A is an immediate predecessor of C and of D. B is also an immediate predecessor of C and of D. C and D are both immediate predecessors of E. Which of the following statements is true? A) There are two paths in this network. B) There are four paths in this network. C) There are five paths in this network. D) There are 25 paths in this network. E) There are six paths in this network. Answer: B Key Term: Activity-on-node (AON) AACSB: Analytic skills Objective: LO2 6) The is a project management technique using only one time factor per activity that enables managers to schedule, monitor, and control large and complex projects. Answer: critical path method or CPM Key Term: Critical path method (CPM) 7) The is the computed longest time path(s) through a network. Answer: critical path Key Term: Critical path Objective: LO4 8) The network analysis method that allows activity times to vary is. Answer: PERT or Program Evaluation and Review Technique

10 9) Identify, in order, the six steps basic to both PERT and CPM. Answer: 1. Define the project and prepare the WBS. 2. Develop the relationships among the activities. 3. Draw the network connecting all of the activities. 4. Assign the time and/or cost estimates to each activity. 5. Compute the critical path the longest time path through the network. 6. Use the network to help plan, schedule, monitor, and control the project. Diff: 3 Objective: LO4 10) What is the basic difference between PERT and CPM? Answer: The basic difference between PERT and CPM is that PERT requires three time estimates of activity completion time, whereas CPM uses only a single estimate.
