Abstract

The critical path method is used to date in production operations whose outputs are relatively large complex end items such as highways, buildings, and ships. This paper considers Fuzzy Mathematical Model to find fuzzy critical path, fuzzy project duration in the network. All the activities in the network are represented by trapezoidal fuzzy numbers. Linear programming model is applied to find fuzzy critical path and fuzzy project duration in manufacturing Tugboat (Tugboat is a small ship that exercises vessels by pushing or towing). Finally practical applications shown with comparison.
