    Barnabas Halimani Zimbabwe Critical Path Method [CPM] is a project modeling technique developed in the late 1950s by Morgan R. Walker and James E. Kelley. The essential technique for using CPM is to construct a model of the project that include a list of all activities required to complete the project (typically categorized within a work breakdown structure), the time [duration] that each activity will take to complete; the dependencies between the activities and logical end points such as milestones or deliverable items. Using these values CPM calculates the longest path of planned activities to logical end points or to the end of the project, and the earliest and latest that each activity can start and finish without making the project longer. This process determines which activities are critical (i.e on the longest path) and which have "total float" (i.e can be delayed without making the project longer).
