  5. Control Schedule
  1. a Process of monitoring the status of the project to update project progress and manage changes to the schedule baseline
  2. b Factors that limit a buyer's options. E.g., funds availability
  3. c Calculates the theoretical early start and finish dates, and late start and finish dates, for all activities without regard to any resource limitations. This is done by performing a forward and backward pass analysis through the schedule network.

5 True/False questions

  1. CrashingA schedule compression technique in which cost and schedule tradeoffs are analyzed to determine how to obtain the greatest amount of compression for the least incremental cost. Crashing only works for activities where additional resources will shorten the duration. It is not always a viable alternative; may result in increased risk and/or cost.


  2. Scope baselineDescribes the need, justification, requirements, and current boundaries for the project.


  3. Sensitivity AnalysisThis involves calculating the theoretical early and late start and finish dates for all project activities without regard to any resource pool restrictions.


  4. Plan Risk ManagementDescribes the processes concerned with identifying, analyzing, and responding to project risk. It includes planning risk management, identifying risks, performing qualitative risk analysis, performing quantitative risk analysis, planning risk responses, monitoring and controlling risks.
