Introducing networks to an in-progress project

Often the need for improvements in planning and scheduling is not realized until far along in a project, possibly even years into a project. By the time the need for a better method is recognized, changing the planning process can be more difficult than having established a network from the beginning of a project. In fact, introducing networks into a project mid-stream more than likely is an indication of other issues the project faces. Implementing Critical Path Method (CPM) networks into in-progress projects takes the form of 8 steps.These steps are, fact finding, developing a business model, identifying project assumptions, assembling the Work Breakdown Structure (WBS), developing the CPM networks, identifying information precedents and sources, establishing an information management function, and conducting resource scheduling.
