Question

Question;Question 1 of 20 5.0 PointsWhat is a milestone? A. A significant event in the projectB. A mark on a chart that depicts project progressC. An activity on the critical pathD. An activity with an uncertain completion time Reset SelectionMark for Review What's This? Question 2 of 20 5.0 PointsWhat is project slack? A. The amount of time a non-critical task can be delayed without making the project lateB. The amount of time the critical path of a project can be delayed without making the project lateC. The amount of time an activity on the critical path can be delayed without making the project lateD. The difference between how long the project would take if all tasks were completed based on their pessimistic versus optimistic time estimates Reset SelectionMark for Review What's This? Question 3 of 20 5.0 PointsFor which purpose is simulation NOT used with regard to project scheduling? A. To overcome the limitations associated with statistical techniques used to develop probability of completion time estimatesB. To investigate the range of project completion timesC.

Start-to-startC. Finish-to-finishD. Start-to-finishQuestion 14 of 20 5.0 PointsOne shortcoming of the __________ network method is that it does not allow for leads and lags between two activities without greatly increasing the number of subactivities to account for this. A. Gantt ChartB. AONC. MSPD. PERT/CPMQuestion 15 of 20 5.0 PointsAn identifiable state resulting from the completion of one or more activities is called: A. an event.B. an activity.C. a milestone.D. a path. Reset SelectionQuestion 16 of 20 5.0 PointsThe major advantage of the Gantt chart is that it: A. addresses all activities.B. is easy to read.C. highlights critical task of the project.D. manages project scheduling.
