Critical path analysis is a technique to map out all the key tasks that are required to complete the project. By this, we can identify the amount of time required to finish all the necessary tasks.
This method is used to set the project deadline by analyzing all the paths in completing the tasks.
How it works:
Critical path analysis is a technique that identifies the sequence of steps involved in the process of the work right from start to end of the work. These processes of steps also include the tasks that are of not so critical. The tasks will be dependent on each other and so one can get confused in working on a non-critical task and the project goal may get deviated.
The critical path analysis technique detects all the tasks that are both critical and non-critical and helps to identify all the minimum and maximum amount of time-related to each path and helps to estimate the overall time required to meet to the project deadline.
Here the project should be tracked over to see that the tasks are not adjusted and no changes are done over time.
Critical path analysis is done by almost all the enterprise companies to detect the timeline and to identify the critical and best path to follow.
