Answer all questions

1. What are the tasks involved in the Project Closure of the project?

2. While constructing network what errors are to be avoided__________


3. If three time estimates for every activity ( optimistic (a), most likely (m) and pessimistic (b)) are given,
then expected time is____________
4. What are Resource optimization techniques?

5. CPM is _________oriented whereas PERT is ____________oriented.

6. _______________is the maximum time available during which an activity can fluctuate. It is the
maximum time available minus activity duration.

7. ______________ is the time available to fluctuate the activity without effecting the succeeding activity.

8. _______________ is the time available to fluctuate if the preceding activity gets completed as late as
possible and succeeding activity gets started as early as possible.

9. Interfering float is defined as difference between ______________and ___________.

10. Forward pass is moving through the network diagram from start to finish and covering all the paths
whereas backward pass is moving through the network diagram in the reverse way or from Finish to start
of the network diagram and covering all the paths. ( True/False)

11. Which of the following is correct about Resource Levelling? (Choose all that apply)
(a) Driven by resource constraints
(b) Done before resource smoothing
(c) Make use of slack
(d) May result in change of project duration
12. Which of the following is correct about Resource Smoothing? (Choose all that apply)
(e) Driven by resource constraints
(f) Done after resource levelling
(g) Make use of slack
(h) Will not result in change of project duration
13. What are the limitations of PERT/CPM

14. Give the purpose of dummy activity?

15. Free float on the critical path is always zero ( True/False)


16. Match the following
A. PERT Research Projects
B. CPM Construction Projects
C. Fulkersons rule Numbering of activities
D. Crashing Time-cost trade-off
E. Fast tracking activities to be carried out in parallel

17. Which of the following is correct? (Choose all that apply)


Critical Path is the
(a) Sequence of activities which add up to the longest overall duration
(b) shortest possible time to complete the project
(c) no float on the critical path
(d) path in which total float of each activity is zero
18. Which of the following is correct? (Choose all that apply)
(a) PERT is probabilistic whereas CPM is deterministic
(b) In CPM, estimates of activity duration are based on historical data
(c) In PERT, estimates are uncertain and we talk of ranges of duration
(d) CPM concentrates on Time/Cost trade off.

19. Name the sources for the claims.

20. Match the following


A. Arbitration Expedited process
B. Litigation Requests by the contractor
C. Claim Conciliation/Mediation
D. Dispute If owner does not agree to the claim put out by contractor
E. Alternate Dispute Resolution Lengthy process
