Critical Path and Near Critical Path
Imagine you have a critical path A-B-C-D of 20 days duration.
You have other path like A-B-E of 16 days duration.
Now the questions tells you that activity E increases in 3 days.
What's the situation now?.
b) Risk increases
Sumarized, answer B is correct.
I realize that A-B-E has become a near-critical-path (19 days). But is it enough to consider that the risk of the project has increased ??
Where is the limit to chose this answer?, I mean, instead increasing E by 3 days, what happen if we increase it by 1 day? A-B-E would be 17 days.
Is it still considered a near critical path?. Have the risk increased too in this case?.
I hope i explained myself properly :)
