Application of the critical path method to the planning of a technology transfer project using linear programming
Item Usage Stats
The main purpose of this thesis is to utilize the critical path method in the planning of a technology transfer project by using linear programming. LINDO software is practiced in establishing the linear programming formulation and a matrix generator is written in C language to input the formulation into LINDO format. In this way, the schedule of the project is created, the completion time of the project is calculated and the activities forming the critical path are determined. Also by applying a parametric analysis to the right-hand sides of the constraints (activity durations) for the noncitical activities, the times when the critical activities became critical are determined.
