ABSTRACT
A deterministic PERT activity-on-arc network G(N, A) with logical operation "AND" at the event's receiver and "MUST FOLLOW" at the event's emitter, is considered. Each activity (i, j) ∊ A entering the model can be operated within several deterministic durations tij depending on the corresponding budgets cij assigned to that activity. The problem centers on determining optimal budget values cij to be assigned to each activity (i, j) ∊ A in order to minimize the network's critical path subject to the restricted pregiven budget C assigned to the whole project G(N, A).

    A fundamental problem in PERT networks is to identify a project's critical paths and its critical activities. In this paper we define the criticality index of a path as the probability that the duration of the path is greater than or equal to the duration of every other path in the network and...
