• Add lead time to at least 2 task relationships with explanatory note

• Add lag time to at least 1 task relationship with explanatory note

• Add a constraint to at least 2 tasks and provide a note explaining why the task is constrained (make certain that the constraint does not create a conflict in the project schedule)

• View your critical path

• Create a note in Line 1 of your MS Project file where you tell me what tasks are on the critical path. It must be in this location. Be sure you tell me the correct critical path, which may or may not be the tasks highlighted in MS Project.

• Display your project in Network Diagram view and save it so that it opens automatically in this view
