Egon Spengler is planning a charity benefit gala for his “Save the City” campaign. However, because one of his partners, Peter Venkman, has difficulty staying on task, the project is scheduled and they are running out of time. Egon has used project management principles to lay out the task relationships and he finds that if they follow the traditional schedule, as outlined below, they will not have enough time to get everything done before the weekend of the gala. Egon has created a list of tasks, their time requirements, and their relationships. He has also begun a network diagram, but needs to know what to do next. He knows that he needs to reduce the total time by three weeks.
Egon will have to crash the tasks into two, and the shortest time to complete the preparation before the gala is 30 weeks.
