The use of critical path methods in the analysis and control of glasshouse construction projects

, : The use of critical path methods in the analysis and control of glasshouse construction projects. Acta Horticulturae (40): 517-530

The paper considers the use of critical path methods on a case study of glasshouse construction. A knowledge of the principles underlying network construction and analysis is assumed, although a problem arising when considerable, time-consuming tasks are sub-divided, is discussed. An alternative way of drawing the network to avoid the problem is suggested. The bar diagram technique of labour and job scheduling is seen to be a management tool as useful as the network itself.

We have previously shown that plasma protein supplementation prevents the activation of lymphocyte populations of Peyer's patches and mesenteric lymph nodes, which is known as organized gut-associated lymphoid tissue (GALT). Here, we examined...
