However, project managers do have different options in crashing or reducing the project duration some include adding additional staffing or resources, outsourcing, and adding overtime constructing a project-cost duration graph identifies costs to reduce project time with the focus of getting the project completed sooner. Chapter 9 reducing project duration read text book chapter 9, project crashing notes in blackboard, learning objectives: describe reasons that project duration may need to be reduced describe options for accelerating project completion create and interpret a project cost-duration graph. The critical path is the longest sequence of tasks in a project the tasks on the critical path control the duration of the entire project any increase in duration of a critical path task will always cause the project’s duration to increase. The current literature on project performance generally focuses on two approaches, that of understanding performance and that of reducing duration because of this, many project managers tend to poss. Reducing project duration can be done by adjusting overlaps between activities or by reducing activities’ duration what is the reason for an increase in direct cost as the.
In this age of increasing demand for electricity and increasing competition from individual power producers, compressed schedule techniques provides a solution to the need for new generating capacity by shortening the project duration of building new utility power plantsschedule compression techniques are technical or managerial strategies to reduce project durationsadding to the. Reducing the project duration increases the risk of being late because reducing the slack of noncritical activities increasing the likelihood of creating new critical paths more critical paths increases the risk of the project being late. For example, a project involves raising a boundary wall in 16 days and moving machinery crates in 8 days, the total duration being 24 days by engaging more workers and excavators, the boundary wall can be made in 12 days and machinery shifted in 4 days, reducing total time to 16 days.

Cost & time and also minimum project duration using alternative method 405 coordinates of the normal and crash points: cost slope = (crash cost-normal cost)/ (normal duration crash duration) as the activity duration is reduced, there is an increase in direct cost. Chapter 9: reducing project duration 4kf3 page 7 of 10 finding the optimum point terminology • all normal ‐ a project schedule in which all durations and costs are at the normal rates • all crash ‐ a project schedule in which all durations are at their lowest durations considerations crash time estimates linearity assumption. The project manager typically can act at the project-level to reduce cost, accordingly favored project-level cost cutting approaches include multiple bidders, finding cheaper resources, shortening duration, and renegotiating your team member’s estimated effort. If the project duration expands beyond the desired finish date, you can shorten it in several ways: shortening lag time between tasks if tasks on the critical path include lag time between them, reducing that lag time is an easy way to shorten the project duration it won’t cost any more.
Reducing project duration to reduce project cost identifying direct costs to reduce project time gather information about direct and indirect costs of specific project durations search critical activities for lowest direct-cost activities to shorten project duration.
