No.

It would be correct to say that A would be the first activity on the critical path, follow by the ones you said.

Hi

Can anyone help me answer two questions from the diagram that a is attached:

1. What is the critical path of this network diagram? From what I understand critical path are activities with Total Slack=LS-ES=0 and Total Slack=LF-EF=0. But below diagram because of the lag I have different values for the start and finish activity for the slacks. The only activities that satisfy Total Slack=LS-ES=0 and LF-EF=0 are A,C,E, H and J...But I cannot get to J with the critical activities? Please make me understand why...have I missed something here?

2. from the diagram what is the critical path duration? I assume it is 52 days.

Help much appreciated.
Best Rgds
