In an essay of 500-600 words, prepare a well-organized examination on the case study based on Chapter 5 from the textbook on the topic-The Wedding Part 2 of 5. In the study you have to:

1. Develop an estimated duration for each activity.

2. Calculate the ES, EF, LS, and LF times and total slack for each activity, using a project start time of 0 (or January 1) and a required project completion time of 180 days (or June 30). If your calculations result in a project schedule with negative total slack, revise the project scope, activity estimated durations, and/or sequence or dependent relationships among activities to arrive at an acceptable baseline schedule for completing the project within 180 days (or by June 30). Describe the revisions that you make.

3. Determine the critical path and identify the activities that make up the critical path.

4. Produce a bar chart (Gantt Chart) based on the ES and EF times from the schedule in item 2.

Draw your sources from the Case Study Instructions [PDF file size 90.1 KB] (pdf.) and relevant peer-reviewed professional literature. Use the American Psychological Association (APA) style (6th edition) for writing your assignment
