Example text

In a 1983 meeting, Kelley stated that the entire algorithm was envisioned mathematically.

The difficulties in reconciling an internal accounting system with the special PERT/Cost breakdown lead the government to the approach designated cost/schedule control systems criteria (CSCS). International Business Machines Corporation (IBM), NASA, the Navy, and others prepared their own versions of PERT and PERT/ Cost. IBM and McDonnell Automation combined forces to prepare a coordinated version of PERT and PERT/Cost, designated project management systems, or PMS. Although substantial technology was applied in the programming and testing of computer systems for PERT and PERT/Cost, applications tended to simplify theoretical approaches.

Now, with project and resource information flowing in, managers had to determine which data were important and which could be disregarded to reach or establish alternatives for decisions. 25 Copyright © 2006, 1999, 1993, 1984, 1971, 1965 by The McGraw-Hill Companies, Inc.

First, engineering school curricula added both network techniques and computer applications to their undergraduate curricula, which resulted in a more natural utilization by recent engineering graduates.
