CRITICAL PATH: A-B-C-E-F= 38 Mins A-D-E-F =29 Mins The critical path is [A-B-C-E-F= 38 Mins].Now we conclude that the sequence of activities between a project start and finish that is 38 mins to complete. ACTIVITY SLACK [LS-ES]: Now we calculate the activity slack.

We conclude that dotmatic can take 9mins to delay without delayed the entire project.

11. RECOMMADATIONS: To save product from printing and design error they should diagnose the printing machine before each roll settle in the machine To remove paper defect in the final packets of product. Company should contain more than 2000 thousand papers in one product. For example if 1packet contain 2000papers then they must contain their 2200 to 2400 to remove the paper defects. Waco international is facing shortage of raw materials; they should buy enough raw materials as required.
