GAO Best Practices
  1. Capturing all activities
  2. Sequencing all activities
  3. Assigning resources to all activities
  4. Establishing the duration of all activities
  5. Establishing the critical path for all activities
  6. Integrating schedule activities horizontally and vertically
  7. Establishing the critical path for all activities
  8. Identifying reasonable float between activities
  9. Conducting a schedule risk analysis
  10. Updating the schedule using logic and durations to determine the dates
