Basic Network Principles

Abstract

This chapter explains in detail the principles of network analysis and the way networks are produced from simple logic diagrams to full construction networks.

The differences between and advantages and disadvantages of activity on arrow (AoN) and activity on node (AoN) diagrams are discussed. The use of hammocks and ladders and the different network configurations or constraints are described. The last part of the chapter discusses the use of bar charts (or Gantt charts) and time scale networks.
