  • Ve Yardon United States of America The Critical Path Method calculates the theoretical early start and finish dates, and late start and finish dates for all schedule activities without regard for any resource limitations. The resulting early and late start and finish dates are not necessarily the project schedule: rather, they indicate the time periods within which the schedule activity should be scheduled, given activity durations, leads, lags and other known constraints.

  • Adam Muhammad Usman Namibia The critical Path is indeed critical since the activities are sequentially arranged and the second activity is dependent upon the completion of the first activity. this implies that availability of resources (human, material and financial) is key while using the critical path.

    • Michael Nwasiwe Nigeria very correct

  • Chiemela Ali Nigeria Critical path is the shortest path it will take to complete the project on time.

    • Michael Nwasiwe Nigeria Yes, which means for the critical part method to succeed each activity must stick to the scheduled time

    • Chiemela Ali Nigeria Other paths might be shorter but they will not see all the activities of the project completed. Its only the critical path that its duration covers all activies of project.

  • Jihadul Islam Bangladesh a delay in one event will delay the completion of the project in the the critical path. on the other hand there will be no other option to reach the goal in time that means project will be crashed.

  • Isabelle Ludovicy United Kingdom The critical path method is a process for scheduling a set of project activities.

  • Mabrat Abdulai Sierra Leone A delay in one activity will lead to a delay in the implementation of the entire project activities

  • Alrafie Abdalla Sudan HOW can i develop it ?
    2015-03-15 12:03:15

  • Alrafie Abdalla Sudan YES ,the good coordination and action work plan scheduled is very important issues as it will re force the efficiency of the project as the delaying of any activity it will effect on the next one .

  • Odongo Moses Uganda The critical path is a series of activities which are vital to the event being completed on time. For example, a delay in one event will delay the completion of the project.

  • Oyetope Oyewunmi Nigeria If there is a delay in a phase of a project, it can affect the total time frame planned for the project

    • Lebogang Lauren Ncwang South Africa Critical path is a series of activities which are vital to the event being completed on time. E.g. Delay in one event will delay the completion of the project.
