c. Usually saves more time
d. Usually saves more money.
Crashing in time management is:

b. A schedule compression technique in which phases or activities that normally would be done in sequence are performed in parallel.
c. The timely input of data to calculate the critical path.
d. Equivalent to minimizing float.
Bar charts are useful in determining:?
a. The level of effort of an activity.
b. Activity start and end dates, as well as expected durations.
c. Availability of resources assigned to perform an activity.
d. Relative priority of activities.
An example of a “soft logic” dependency, is:?

b. To install the plumbing and electrical work at the same time family is living in a house.
c. Finished software before training program.
d. To schedule the final testing activity of a computer before the manual is finish.
Analogous duration estimating is:?
a. Bottom-up estimating.
b. Frequently used to estimate project duration when there is a limited amount of detailed information.

As one of the tools and techniques of Sequence Activities, a lead:?
a. Directs a delay in the successor activity.
b. Could be accomplished by a finish-to-start relationship with a delay time.
c. Means the successor activity cannot start until after the predecessor is completed.
d. Allows an acceleration of the successor activity.
A schedule compression technique to determine how to obtain the greatest amount of compression for the least incremental cost is called:?
c. Precedence Diagram Method - PDM.
d. Fast tracking.
