In the context of activity-on-arrow (AOA) network representation, textbooks on project management, based on our survey, have for decades been using a popular formula to calculate free floats that may lead ... In this note, we present a correct version of the formula. Extensions of the proposed formula to other floats such as safety float and interference float are also discussed. ... activity in the network diagram that reverses all the arrows in the original one and treats the end node as the start node and vice versa. ...doi:10.1057/palgrave.jors.2601636 fatcat:lkpffngmqzhzjot22v4obl7el4

of diagramming has been adopted In plac ing each arrow on the dia ram, the following five questions must be answered 1. ... The column called total float (TF) is the quantitative movement possible for each activity without af- fecting the activities on the Critical Path. ...

Notes on incorporating the algorithm in a PC project network analysis program are included in Appendix A. ... Their use of the activity-on-arrow formulation also requires additional care; each resource link can require the creation of several dummy activities. ...
But, changing the duration of critical activities in the PDM network will have an anomalous effect on the critical path and the project completion date. ... In this study, we classified the critical activities in two groups i.e., 1. activity on single critical path and 2. activity on multi-critical paths, and six classes i.e., normal, reverse, neutral, perverse ... The classifications are described in detailed and depicted in figures as follows. Note that each arrow in the figures represents the critical path direction. A. ...doi:10.5281/zenodo.1474540 fatcat:qzx2s3tskjb45lh2vejyaunrsu
Activity network models are usually represented by activity-on-node precedence diagramming or activity-on-branch arrow diagramming. ... In this representation, a link can represent an activity or one of up to sixteen different precedence or window constraint types. ... INTRODUCTION For the past several decades, the activity-on-node (or precedence diagram) and the activity-on-branch (or arrow diagram) network models have been competing activity network representations ...doi:10.1061/(asce)0887-3801(1989)3:2(192) fatcat:lvbdcjs54fb6vguk3czy4kq7ii

It should be noted that a network can have more than one critical path. ... Therefore the critical activities in the last example are a and c. The Total Float. ...
four noncritical activities. The total float of activities and the lag times be- tween them are shown in Table 1. ... The model has the following features: (a) it guarantees the optimum leveling; (b) it is applicable to activity-on-arrow, activity-on-node, and precedence net- works with single or multiple critical paths ...

If this precedence relationship is on the critical path, that means without no event slack or float time for activities, then some procurements delay may cause lag in the project's completion time. ... Thus a good estimation for procurement and research activities duration is needed for a Just-in-Time project. ... There are two types of diagrams: Activity on Arrow (AoA) and Activity on Node (AoN). ...doi:10.21698/simi.2019.fp22 fatcat:jvgysl3p7zezdgbhvbm3lqrwcu

This research proposes the Beeline Diagramming Method (BDM) as a new networking technique that can represent all kinds of overlapping relationships between activities. ... The Critical Path Method (CPM) has gradually increased in importance in the construction industry since the Arrow Diagramming Method (ADM) and the Precedence Diagramming Method (PDM) were introduced in ... In the BDM network, however, a free float is calculated based on the beeline connecting points between two consecutive activities. ...doi:10.12783/dtetr/icmeit2018/23468 fatcat:4kkz6hkrlvcljep4uczdgm4y6m
The methods of CPM and PERT were used to analyze a process that delivers service to customers in an organization faced with the problem of providing additional parking space for its customers' trucks. ... In addition, the customers were happy with less time spent in the company's premises. ... This will reveal activities that must be completed before a particular activity can commence. 2) Each activity is represented by only one arrow in the network. 3) No two activities can have the same end ...doi:10.5539/ijbm.v6n6p286 fatcat:xpggmbwqvbayfn6ir7xn3c56xm

Research Limitations/Implications -Criticality had merely relied upon a single deterministic analysis of a network schedule to categorize activities as having zero or nonzero float from fixed relative ... Design/Methodology/Approach -This research hypothesizes that schedule structure plays a vital role in its ability to absorb or propagate delays. ... But in larger networks with multiple merges on parallel paths, this will not necessarily still be the case because the critical path may bypass a merge on a path that has some float. ...doi:10.1108/s2516-285320190000002027 fatcat:jbdoipsahngmdj2m4lc7pywlcm
