End Node Diagrams, Making Sense of Schedule Risk Criticality

Determining the potential criticality of each activity is a key result from the project schedule’s Monte Carlo simulation. Activity criticality is used to identify the probabilistic critical and near critical-paths. For the past 10 years, Jerry Klanac has successfully used end-node diagrams to graphically convey this information to project stakeholders. Here he illustrates the creation of an end-node diagram in NetPoint as well as further enhancement in NetRisk.
