CPM Mechanics (Digital)

CPM Mechanics is the first volume of the ICS-Compendium to be written and published — and for a very good reason. Everything depends on one’s understanding of the basics of the Critical Path Method, at its functional core.

The focused scope of CPM Mechanics is to fully explain every aspect of how the Critical Path Method works “under the hood.” Left for another ICS-Compendium text (Volume 3) is how to apply the CPM technology discussed in this volume  — so as to design, develop, and maintain an actual Critical Path Schedule.

The goal of this book is to teach the underlying science behind the Critical Path Method. While the subject matter may seem a bit dry and technical, its full understanding is essential to any subsequent use of the information derived from a CPM-based schedule.
