CPM scheduling is a project modeling technique for scheduling a set of projects activities. It is crucial to know the nature of the relations connecting the activities with one another to be able to identify a critical path with which the project will be on its optimal track of completion with least possible chances of any delays.
CPM Scheduling requires gathering sufficient data about the activities, as specified in the contract pertaining to the project. Followed by identifying their logical sequence and dependencies on one another, the type of connections between them and their expected durations and lead time.
