BUS 461 Week 3 Discussion 2 - Project Scheduling Techniques

Ajax is about to embark on a project involving the design, manufacture and introduction of a new microwave oven.  The first three activities and the immediate predecessors are:
Activity Predecessor
A. Prototype Design none
B. Acquisition of Materials A
C. Prototype Construction B
However, it has not yet been decided whether the prototype materials will be purchased from a vendor (taking two weeks) or produced in another Ajax division (four weeks).  What are the implications of this regarding usage of any standard project scheduling technique? Respond to at least two of your classmates’ postings. Carefully review the Discussion Forum Grading Rubric for the criteria that will be used to evaluate this Discussion Thread.
