Critical Path Method

Planning tool that is used to demonstrate and view the chronological tasks and activities of a program or process and identifies any possible timing risks and can be used to establish the least amount of time to complete a project.

The chronological path with the less amount of flexibility in time could be identified as the critical path. Usually defined during the process design phase and can be seen most clearly using a process map or process flowchart, but may need to be employed as required, like in a process redesign and the like.

Also see PQ - Process Performance Qualification, Process improvement, Process management, and Process map (flowchart).
