Task Network

Let us now apply the principles studied above to develop a plan for a concept development project.  In this case the potential for new technology or new business idea is explored. Since it is a concept development project, the applicability is not certain but it appears to be useful and hence needs to be explored. Major tasks include:

    • Concept scoping
    • Preliminary concept planning
    • Technology risk assessment
    • Proof of concept
    • Concept implementation
    • Customer reaction to concept

    Defining a Task Network

    Once the tasks have been identified, we need to develop a task network to determine the sequence in which these activities need to be performed. This will ultimately lead to the time required to complete the project (to be discussed later). The following diagram shows the task network for the above project.
