Using Relationship Diagrams to Enhance the Critical Path Method of Project Scheduling
This white paper provides an overview of the Critical Path Method (CPM) for project scheduling and the history of its development. The implementation of the Relationship Diagramming Method (RDM) variant of CPM within Oracle's Primavera Risk Analysis (Release 8.2 or later) is illustrated, and the benefits of such an approach are highlighted. Primavera Risk Analysis is certified to be compliant with RDCPM, and it allows the user preparing a CPM to better model the real world. In addition, the user reviewing the CPM submitted by another can perform a more in-depth evaluation.
