network analysis

A management tool designed to reduce a system’s energy or labour expenditure to a minimum. Network analysis also tries to estimate the amount of time that the growth of interrelated tasks (“network”) will take by arranging the network in time-dependent routes, where the critical path is the one that requires the most time and which requires input from the previous steps.
