Applying Time Constrained and Resource Constrained Concepts to a Meal!
PROJECT: Family Dinner
NEW THREAD: Choose a simple meal that includes a recipe you would prepare for a family dinner. It may be helpful to create a rough draft of the network diagram & post/attach to your thread. (Use any method, a hand-drawn picture or Excel or other software to do this!)
Consider & discuss the following in your New Thread:
What resources are needed: People, Materials, Equipment
Is the meal time-constrained or resource constrained? Why?
Based on your choice above discuss:
What are the critical activities or critical path to bring the dinner to completion?
For Time-Constrained: Discuss using leveling to improve the utilization of resources needed & meet the time constraint?
For Resource-Constrained: Discuss how would you prioritize & allocate scarce resources to minimize the delay of dinner?
Discuss how you might use “splitting tasks” to help? Were there costs to doing this? Consider both monetary & conceptual costs.
