A BULLETIN DEVOTED TO ADVANCED TECHNIQUES OF MANAGEMENT
PUBLISHED AND DISTRIBUTED BY MANAGEMENT SCIENCE ATLANTA , INC .
CRITICAL PATH ISSUE NO. 6
VOL. III NO. 2
NOVEMBER 1964
HOME OF THE BRAVES SCHEDULED BY CPM
At this writing the long task of obtaining a
definite commitment from a major league baseball club
to occupy the large $18-million Atlanta Sports Stadium
next spring is almost completed. Construction of the
stadium is almost one-half completed, and the Critical
Path Method is helping to. assure that the job will be
completed in time to toss out the first ball to the new
Atlanta (nee Milwaukee) Braves next April.
The extremely short schedule, 12 months, desired
by the Atlanta and Fulton County Recreation Authority
resulted in premium bid prices for the construction
contract and the need for close control of the schedule.
The architects, a joint venture of Heery and Heery and
Finch, Alexander, Barnes, Rothschild and Paschal,
required the use of CPM for progress reports by the
contractor. It turned out that the low bidder on the 12month schedule was a firm with recent experience in
using CPM on stadium construction . . The contractor,
Thompson & Street Company, had used CPM to help
finish the University of Georgia Coliseum 40 days
ahead of schedule (Pathfinder, August 1963).
As in the Coliseum project, Management Science
Atlanta assisted Thompson and Street in setting up the
CPM schedule for the stadium and in handling much cf
the periodic updating. The network for the stadium
contains 3240 activities drawn on 16 pages. The
computer selected for the CPM processing was the
Burroughs B-5000 at the Rich Electronic Computer
Center at Georgia Tech. The B-5000 program has a
capacity of 524,288 activities.
The specifications called for updating the CPM
schedule every two weeks. At these updating periods,
the progress of the previous two weeks , along with
any changes in the logic of the construction plan
which have developed durin·g the reporting period, are
fed to the computer and a current status report and new
schedule are generated.
The management of Thompson & Street has stated
that they would have used CPM on this project even if
it had not been required. They report that one of the
major uses of the updated schedules is better co-ordination among the many subcontractors, the general
contractor, the architect, and the owner. A computer
printout of the CPM schedule was made a part of many
of the subcontracts. The CPM plan and schedule has
also helped signal the need for some major revisions of
the original construction plans.
An example of the type of management action which
is implemented by the CPM schedule was the change in
the established location of the precast yard. The
original location of the yard was in the playing field
area which would be close to the points of use for the
cast structural items. A computer report indicated that
there would not be enough time remaining after the
finish of the precasting operation to be able to erect
the temporary football bleachers, obtain the owner's
approval, and remove the stands to clear the field for
baseball. Consequently, the precast yard was constructed in the parking lot -rather than on the playing
field.

�NETWORK FORMATS DIFFER
Currently, there are three project networking
formats i n use: ( 1) activity-on-arrow, (2 ) event
oriented, and ( 3) a c tivity- on-node. Interestingly,
the appare nt best format, the activity- on-node, is
l eas t u sed ,
In the activity- on-node format, activities are
graphically represented by nod e s inste ad of arrows ,
The arrows are us e d to repre s e nt only the dependency
re lationships among the nodes . This format does not
require the use of special dummy activitie s . The
principal advantage of the format is its simplicity,
since the avoidance of dummy activities elimi nates
the ma jority of n etworking problems. Professor
John Fondahl of Stanford University, a noted CPM
authority, supports the activity-on-node format as
the best. The format is not too widely used primarily
b e c a u se it wa s not notice d until afte r the other
formats be came popular, and very fe w CPM computer
programs are written for it.
In t he activity-on- arrow format, activities are
graphically represented by arrows . The arrows are
interconne cted to show, as ne arly as practical, the
true d e pe nde ncy relationships among activities. To
c orre ctly s how d e pe nde ncies , the activity-on-arrow
format re quire s the freque nt use of dummy a ctivities
at merge and burst points.
In the e vent-oriented format, which is most
closely a s s oc iate d with PERT, the node s may represent e ithe r "start" or "end" eve nts. Activity
d escriptions a re pla c e d ins id e the nod e s , a nd
ac tiv ities a re re presente d by a rrows, upon whic h
time estima tes a re noted . Among use rs of t he system,
the re is considerable variation in the use of start
e vents and dummie s . The syste m is e ss e ntially a
hybrid combina tion of the othe r two systems . Due to
its ambiguity a t me rge points a nd non- s t a ndard conv e ntio n s , the e v e nt-orie nte d syste m ofte n c a uses
proble ms of mis inte rpre t a tion .
Exampl es of each of the t hree formats are
i llustrated below, along w ith common errors made when
the two most popular formats are used .
Management Science Atlanta currently uses the
activity-on- arrow format a l most exclusively because
of the wide variety of CPM computer programs written
for it. The popularity of the activity-on-node format,
however, is e xpecte d to increa s e s ignificantly in the
near future . Re cently, two ne w activity - o n - node
computer progra ms were made a v a ila ble, o ne for the

from "Stadium-itis", and the results range
from picture postcards to paper placemats!
You will find enclosed several of
each - - - the postcards for your friends in
other cities and the placemats for your dinner

The Atlanta Stadium will be The

Memo to:
Subject:
From excavation to exclamation!
It is almost unbelievable that we have
come from excavation to public exclamation
over the Atlanta Stadium in less than twelve
months.
And exclamation is a conservative way to
describe public reaction to the Stadium as
60,000 visited it during the past two weekends.
30,000 more are expected to view it this weekend.
We are looking forward to welcoming the
Braves -- players and management -- to Atlanta
one week from today. In the meantime, I know
you will enjoy reading the enclosed special
Stadium edition of the Atlanta Journal-Constitution Magazine.
Sincerely,

where he would be staying. I gather from talking to Bill Bartholomay'
secretary that he wasn' t invited. They have a new director, Charles Smith,
who may have replaced Perini.
For your infi>rmation, we have done some rather extensive mailings to these
people, beginning at Christmas with a subscription to ATLANTA magazine .
Such items as favorable news clippings, photograph of the Brave Christmas
tree, special section of Atlanta Newspaper Maga zine, the new Guide to Atlanta,
have been ent to their home •
Al 0 1 the official dedication of the Stadium will be held on July 29th, when

Dear Mr. Allen:
Thank you very much for your kind Christmas present.
I shall look forward to the arrival of each issue. I also
enjoyed reading through the material which you sent earlier
describing some of the features of your fine city. Needless
to say, we are all very excited about the prospect of playing
major league baseball in Atlanta beginning April 1966, and
are all terribly disappointed that we have to wait that long.
I was in Atlanta about six weeks ago and was sorry to
miss you. However, Sid Scarborough took excellent care of
me and showed me the stadium as well as other parts of the
city.
Best wi shes for a happy holiday and I look forward to
seeing you some time soon.

There is no doubt in our minds the Braves Organization will receive a better

proves the State and Local Goverment s~ows an oppressive attitude toward its

Atlanta has shown its self to be one of the most progressive Southern Cityies

It was especially heartening to hear the clubspokesme·n state
·"We may play in Milwaukee but our hearts will be in Atlanta

What the ~raves' spokesmen have done is to justify the faith

for them, despite the chilling 45-degree
weather.
'·THIS STADIUM should certainly be a
favorite with all the ball players," said
Mathews, himself long acquainted with popularity. "Due to its circular structure, wind
currents won't be a hazard to the hitters.
I'll especially like that," he laughed.
"Won't we all," Aaron offered. "Since
we won't have any wind currents here,
the other club's pitchers won't be nearly as
effective. Their 'stuff' won't have as much
of a chance to dance and dip as it normally
would in a ball park that is open."

AARON, WHO considers 1964 an " off
year" despite his .328 batting average, 24
home runs and 95 runs batted in, wandered
toward right field . It is here he will devote
his waking hours when the Braves of Atlanta
play defensive baseball.
"I like to hit in a ball park where there
are no wind currents, and that's why I
think I'm going to love this place," he told
several writers who shadowed him and
Mathews ·throughout the morning.
" An awful lot more hits are going to fall
as they should in here, " he said. Both stars,
long regarded as undisputable-and unstoppable-candidates for the Hall of Fame
at the end of their careers , also studied the
foul lines.
"It's only 320 feet to right field ," Mathews
said. " We11, that's great. Somebody said it
was 380 and I was already thinking about
trying to switch hit. " Aaron said it would
" take quite a poke to hit one out, but you
can bet I'll be trying."
A Braves official brought two bats out of
the dugout and invited the sluggers to pose
with them for photographers. One was an
E ddie Mathews model, which Aaron hurried
to pick up . Mathews got the one with
Yankee great Mickey Mantle's name on it.
"HEY, HANK, who is this guy,"
Mathews jibbed. " I don't think I've ever
heard of him ." Aaron assured his teammate
American League pitchers wished they
never had .
"Atlanta Stadium will take a backseat to
none, " Mathews said. "Honestly, this is
great."
" It is great," Aaron said, nodding in full
agreement. " This is the first time I've ever
been in a stadium that is completely round,
and I am grea tly impressed."
Both said they welcomed the chance to
hit here in 1965 when the Braves play some
exhibition games. So will Atlanta and all
Dixieland.

STADI UM NAME TO COME SATURDAY
By BILL CLARK
Atlanta's $18-million stadium has a name right now, but the
world must wait for Saturday night.
The Touchdown Club Jamboree banquet at 7 p.m. at the
Dinkier-Plaza has been chosen for the 1ong-awaited revelation.
Stadium Authority chairman Arthur Montgomery will make the
announcement.
Ara Parseghian, leader of Notre Dame's resurgent Irish
and the nation's c<>-holder of Coach of the Year acclaim for
1964, will share the Saturday night shindig spotlight. He will
deliver the main address.
Bill Pritchard of the TD Club said Thursday that a round
of informal parties will launch the Atlanta pigskin production
Friday. Delegations from most of the leading bowl games play
hosts.
A cocktail party and buffet supper Friday night beginning
at 6 p.m. officially opens the gathering. A luncheon floor show
is slated Saturday at noon . All three major events are to be
staged on the Dinkier roof.
The name for the city's mammoth new stadium has been a
popular conversational item here for almost a year. News
media have run contests to prompt suggestions. The Authority
has studied reams of proposals and arrived at a decision.
The TD Jamboree will be attended by athletic officials
from throughout the south, both from the high school and college level. The event coincides with the SEC meeting currently
in progress to assure strong area representation.

Atlanta Wins Hank s
By HAL HAYES
The Henry Louis Aaron Family, six strong,
will make Atlanta its 1966 home when the baseball Braves of Milwaukee become a memory
and the National League and true Southern
hospitality become acquainted.
"If I don't move my family down here , I
migh t as well join the Army or something,"
the stylish right fielder, more commonly known
as Hank, said. " I wouldn't get to be with them
then either. Sure we 'll move.
"We visited in many or' the residential sections of the city this morning, and both my
wife an~ I were awfully impressed," he said.
"We saw some truly lovely houses down here ."
Earlier , Wisconsin newspapers reportedly
quoted Aaron as saying· he would not move
his famil y to Atlanta in 1966.
He flatly denied
this.
" I said it would be hard to leave Milwaukee,
where all of our close friends are," he said ,
" but I never said I wouldn't move here. That's
just one of the many stories some writers have
twisted."
Aaron was but a few hours away from
hoarding a fligh~ back to Wisconsin. The mission to which he and teammate Eddie Mathews
had dedicated their weekend was done.. They
had come, as special guests of the 100 Per
