Perform a critical path analysis for the network and calculate the ES, EF, LS, and LF times. • Calculate the slack time for each activity. • Identify the critical path. • Assume that the organization will receive a $1000 bonus for each day the duration of the project is shortened. The organization is also responsible for paying the crash cost associated with shortening the schedule. To maximize the net profit, identify which task you should crash and by how much.

SchedulingInsert your nameMGT3059Insert dateInsert your professor's nameSchedulingAny organization that wants to succeed in its production activities needs to create a blueprint for guidance. Establishing a schedule for a project entails orderliness and allotment of realistic time to which activity to complete before proceeding to the next activity in the project. Scheduling is a mechanism of communicating which work to perform, resources applicable to the work and the lapse of time the work needs to be accomplished (Heizer, Jay, & Barry, 2013, p. 63). Using the information for this assignment, this paper will illustrate scheduling for an organization (South University, 2015).Draw the Activity on Node (AON) Project Network AON is a visual illustration of how each activity in the tabular data are related by using arrows to connect them and a node (number) to symbolize each of the project network (Usmani, 2015, p. 1). Figure 1.1 shows the AON for a hypothetical organization - Top Notch Goods.Figure 1.1Node ActivitiesCritical Path AnalysisHeizer, Jay, & Barry (2013) stated, "the critical path is the longest time path through the network. To find the critical path, we calculate two distinct starting and ending times for each activity. These are defined as follows:Earliest start (ES) = earliest time at which an activity can start, assuming all predecessors have been completedEarliest finish (EF) = earliest time at which an activity can be fini
