Question – 1 You have just completed developing the Schedule Network Diagram for a project that deals with building fiiletype sonic state of the art Jet planes. You have identified your critical path which includes building a wind tunnel. You see that in addition there is another path which deals with building the tail of the plane – whose duration is close to the critical path. You also notice considerable floats on the other paths. You now need to assign resources to the tasks – you have a few team members who are highly skilled and a team of resources who are relatively inexperienced.
What would be the best course of action while assigning resources? It is irrelevant which resources are assigned to tasks – resource skills and critical paths have nothing in common B. Assign all the skilled resources to building the wind tunnel which is the critical path – assign the non skilled task to building the tail. Assign the inexperienced staff to the task of building the wind tunnel – and assign the skilled task to all other tasks. Assign one half of the skilled resources to the task of building the wind tunnel filrtype the other half to building the tail and assign the less experienced staff to all the other tasks.
D is the correct answer.
quetions Option D is the best option. Option A and C are just plain wrong – you should always ensure actvities on the critical path do not get delayed – so having the best equipped staff on critical path activities is important.
While Option B is an option – it cannot be the BEST choice since if we assign all the experienced staff on building the wind tunnel – the critical path activities are taken care of – but the question also states of a path which is near Critical – building of the tail. Not paying attention to this path by assignining inexperienced staff is not a good option.
