The book is a synthesis of the state-of-the-art in project management concepts and techniques. The author places particular emphasis on precedence diagramming (PDM), at present the most widely used scheduling method. New theoretical improvements of PDM are presented, several for the first time in a book, such as: maximal type of precedence relationships, calculating the minimal and maximal available project durations, leveling resources when maximal relationships are used, and precedence diagramming time-cost trade-off. Discussions of computer implementation are included throughout the book. A PC-based software package called `ProjectDirector', containing the theoretical improvements described in the book, is available from the author. Audience: Researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students in civil engineering, industrial engineering and operations research, as well as practitioners, managers, and contractors interested in project management.This tool can be considered as the forerunner of modern network techniques. It kept the activity relationships and gave answers to the first two questions listed in Step 5. Basic Calculations. This method had however no answers for theanbsp;...
