You are the project manager for Software Development project. The feasibility study can start any time and takes 1 week and Requirement gathering takes 2 weeks which can start only after feasibility study. The Design and Test Plan development can start in parallel after the Requirements gathering.Test plan preparation takes 8 weeks followed by a review by the customer and the time estimated for review is 1 week. After the review, Test Data preparation takes 6 weeks. Design takes 6 weeks and it is followed by Development and Unit Testing, for one module it takes 2 weeks and for the other module it takes 2 weeks. There are no dependencies between modules and they can be developed simultaneously. After Test Data preparation and Development and Unit testing of both the modules, there is 2 weeks system testing.
What is the lag time on the critical path?
Correct Answer - 1 Week
My Answer - 0 week
As per my understanding, there should not be any Lag time on the Critical Path based on above scenerio as none of the activities is waiting for specific time after the predecessor activity is completed.
