Modeling in Investment Design Using Network Methods and its Applications

Author: Yelena V. Butsenko


The article deals with the live issues of investment design in a company. To optimize the process of investment design the author proposes to apply the methods of network economic-mathematical modeling. Using a practical example the author shows the process of forming a network model that implies determination of a sequence of actions of investment design and their coding. The network graph corresponding to the model is constructed. The paper presents the procedure of calculating the parameters of the network model, calculates and analyzes such parameters of the network model as the least early dates of events and the latest dates of completion of events. The critical path is formed, the optimal time is calculated, and the execution schedule for the investment project under consideration is prepared.

Keywords: network model; investment design; optimization of investment design; network schedule; calculation of the model parameters; critical path; slack time.
