### Crashing a project - help!

Posted:

**Fri 09 Jan 2015 5:17 pm**Hi, first of all I am new to the forum so please be nice :)

I am a student and I'm learning the in's and out's of project management using Excel and MS Project. I have been attempting to complete practice assignments set by my tutor to help me for when I have to sit exams later this year.

I am stuck on one part:

Demonstrate how you would “crash” the project to enable it to achieve maximum profit if the rental income from the development is assumed to be 80% of its maximum. - That is, HK$2,800 per day when operational.

Thanks,
