From the above figure, it is obvious that the critical path is B - F - G - I - J.
Expected Duration of the Entire Project
Expected time for the path A - C- E - H - J = 3 + 4.5 + 5 + 11 + 3.5 = 27 weeks
Expected time for the path B - D - H - J = 7 + 11.5 + 11 + 3.5 = 33 weeks
Expected time for the path B - F - G - I - J = 7 + 10 + 6.5 + 6.5 + 3.5 = 33.5 weeks
The critical path is B - F - G - I - J, therefore, the expected duration of the entire project is 33.5 weeks.
Slack for Project Task A
Slack time for project task A is estimated as follows:
Slack time=Latest Finish-Earliest Finish
Slack time=9.5-3=6.5
Slack for Project Task H
Slack time for project task H is estimated as follows:
Slack time=Latest Finish-Earliest Finish
Slack time=30-29.5=0.5
