lets learn about crashing in project management in this article…
Crashing in project management can be seen as a schedule compression method that analyses cost and schedule trade offs to determine how to obtain the greatest schedule compression for the least incremental cost. When you are crashing a project, you are allocating more resources to activities on
the critical path so that they can finish on time.
Allocating resources to activities on the critical path will help you to shorten the duration of your project on the long run.
There are some procedures that you need to follow when you are doing crashing for a project.
#2: You need to identify the costs that are associated with the normal duration. That means you need to know how much you are to spend if the project is to take the normal duration. When you understand the cost of the project, you will be able to juxtapose those project cost with that cost of the new cost that you need to reduce the time frame for the project.
#3: You need to know how much the project will cost under crashing condition. When you know the cost that the project will take under normal condition, will be able to know the cost of the project on task by task basis so that you will not make crashing project hastily.
#4: You need to know the duration estimate under crashing condition as well.
Crash cost plotting methods which is part of crashing graph are techniques for analysing the crash costs by creating a graph or visuals that clearly illustrates those costs. Plotting a crashing graph allows decision makers to decide on which of the project activities to crash at any given time.
