The paper describes the benefits of using critical path analysis for the management of construction projects. The project control system, which is an IBM application programme useful for critical path analysis, is also described. Two examples, one using an arrowed diagram and another using an activity-on-node diagram for a bridge construction project are described in detail. With the use of a computer for performing the computations, the application of critical path method for large networks encountered in practice has been made simple. (TRRL)
