Critical Path

The Glossary

Critical path

The critical path is the sequence of activities that must be completed on schedule for the entire project to be completed on schedule.

It is the longest duration path through the workplan. If an activity on the critical path is delayed by one day, the entire project will be delayed by one day (unless another activity on the critical path can be accelerated by one day).
