Tips on using this forum..

(1) Explain your problem, don't simply post "This isn't working". What were you doing when you faced the problem? What have you tried to resolve - did you look for a solution using "Search" ? Has it happened just once or several times?

(2) It's also good to get feedback when a solution is found, return to the original post to explain how it was resolved so that more people can also use the results.

As reported in: "CRITICAL PATH SCHEDULING: Fundamentals and Concepts", Prepared for the 1962 Convention of the American Association of Cost Engineers, June 25 - 27, 1962 Chicago, Illinois.

" Some roughly quoted times on different computers for various projects are: 10 minutes on the IBM 1401 computer for 1,000 jobs; 20 minutes on the IBM 1620 computer for a project of similar size; and 3 l/2 minutes on the IBM 7074 computer for a project of 500 jobs."

I think that the time has changed from minutes to seconds in 50 years. Many will like this trivia.

With kind regards,
