Computer construction of minimal project networks

by B. Dimsdale
Computer techniques, now employed by management in the planning, scheduling, and control of projects, generally rely on the formulation of project 'networks' as input to the computer programs. This paper discusses a computer procedure for improving the input by obtaining networks with certain minimal properties. With this improvement in input, the overall efficiency in using existing programs can be increased.
