### Cm exercise 4

1. 1. Mansoura University Construction Project ManagementFaculty of Engineering 3rd Year CivilStructural Eng. Dept. 2006-2007 Exercise 4 Due date: Wednesday, Nov 2nd 20051. The free float is defined as: a. The amount of time an activity can be delayed without affecting the following activity. b. The amount of time an activity can be delayed without affecting total project duration.2. Total float equals: a. Late finish minus early finish c. Late start minus early start b. Late finish minus (early start + duration) d. All of the above3. State True (T) or False (F): a. The critical activities can be determined easily when using the bar chart. b. The network must have definite points of beginning and end. c. The network must be continuous from start to end. d. There’s no dummy activities in the arrow networks, e. A forward pass is used to determine late start and late finish times. f. The time for completing a project is equal to the sum of the individual activity times.4. For the Following project data, answer the following questions: Activity Duration (days) Predecessor A 2 -- B 6 A C 3 A D 1 B E 6 B F 3 C, D G 2 E, F a) Draw an AOA network and perform forward and backward pass calculations? b) Draw an AON network and perform forward and backward pass calculations? c) Draw a time-scaled diagram of the project? d) Tabulate activities ES, EF, LS, LF, TF, and FF. e) What is the effect of delaying activity D by 3 days?5. For the following AOA network, determine the following: a. Calculate ES, LF, & TF for all activities. Identify critical ones. b. Draw an early Bar Chart for the project. c. What is the effect of delaying activity “H” by two days on the total project duration?Construction Management 1 Dr. Emad Elbeltagi

It will consist essentially ofa sales outlet and an office block. The sales outlet comprises of cash office and gas pumps. Themanager’s office building, which also houses public washrooms and an air compressor, is calledthe office block. Adjacent to pumps will be a concrete pit that will house the gas tanks.The entire area, excluding the office and pumps site, is covered with a concrete slab, and there isa low perimeter wall in the rear. The utility company has undertaken to install an electric meteron the site and connect it to the mains. Gasoline pumps must be obtained from themanufacturers, and after being installed, they are to be connected to the gasoline tanks and thepower supply. Before use the local authority to ensure safety and compliance with regulationsmust inspect them. Gasoline tanks are housed in concrete pits and covered by concrete slabs.Before they are covered, however, the tanks and the associated pipe work have to be inspectedby the local authority. The sales outlet base is excavated first, the pipe work and tanks second,the office block third, and the trench for underground services last. After the excavation for thetanks and pipe work is completed, work can proceed on the construction of the perimeter walland air points.Compressed air for inflated tires will be supplied by an electrically driven compressor, whichmust be inspected by a competent person before the compressor is put into use. The air lines toConstruction Management 2 Dr. Emad Elbeltagi
3. 3. Mansoura University Construction Project ManagementFaculty of Engineering 3rd Year CivilStructural Eng. Dept. 2006-2007the “free air” points are installed with the general underground services, and the pointsthemselves are mounted on the perimeter wall. The air pints can be hooked up after the concreteslab has been poured. Mobilization to start work comprises, among other preparations, themoving of a trailer to the site to store tools, furnishings, and any weather prone parts and to serveas the site office. Similarly, when work at the site is completed, the trailer will be removed, andall scaffolding and construction equipment taken away. This is known as “demobilization andclean up of site.”You are required to determine the project duration, critical path(s), and tabulate activity times(ES, EF, LS, LF, TF, and FF).
