An interconnected or interrelated chain, group, or system. In graphic representation the single interrelated activities are indicated by arrows. If some of the activities are interdependent, either beginning or end coincide in a so-called "milestone", represented by a square or a circle. In logistics the term network refers to goods flow along the distribution channels between factories and distribution centres.
network planning system
A method for drawing up a time schedule for a project, whereby the project is subdivided into its single activities at first, which are then arranged in an arrow diagram to form a logical network. Once this is done the duration of each activity is analysed. In doing so those activities which determine the lead time are identified (critical path). Finances and capacity can then be reallocated to improve the time schedule. The duration of the project can thus be estimated as precisely as possible. If in the course of the project there are deviations from the time schedule estimated, this will be indicated so that they can be corrected or other measures taken to avoid damage. There are several network planning systems, e.g. PERT Program Evaluation and Review Technique; CPM Cricitical Path Method and others.
