Scenario:
A docking survey should be carried out twice within a 5 year period. The intermediate survey must be completed within 3 years. Preparation for dry dock begins after the ship sails from its previous one. A dry-dock list of new items is created with specification sheets describing individual jobs. These sheets are compiled into a dry dock file which some time before the due date of the docking is submitted to several dry docks for pricing.

The critical path for my project is as shown above. It shows the fastest time (red arrows) it would take to completely remove and replace the Cathelco Anodes and also gives a better understanding of what task need to be completed on time to make sure the job is done and completed on time without any problems.

This second group of Dummy task also shows that if there was a delay in gathering the tools or filling the permit to work, the following task would not be affected as it could be started at a later time and would not therefore affect the critical path. This Dummy task helps make the preparation for the job more better and also reduces the amount of time it would take to get the job started.

Describe the Critical Resources:
