Critical path method, Computer Networking

You are the Senior Project Manager in a software company and have, as part of your team, a student on a three month internship. The student has proudly told you that they have studied a project management module and understand network diagrams and the critical path method (CPM). You have a small project to undertake for a client, so you ask the student to produce an Activity on Node (AON) network, use CPM on the network, suggest whether the project can be completed with the 60 day schedule and, if not, recommend which activity times might be crashed.

You were rather disappointed when, two days, later the student comes back with one sheet of paper merely containing the network shown below.

Advise on what the network and subsequent analysis should have looked like. (Assume the work breakdown, precedence of activities, and logic of the above network are correct).

Please note, as this is largely a practical assignment, you do not need to provide extensive bibliographical references.
