Pearson D1 Scheduling Diagram query

    I'm teaching D1 for the first time and had a query today that I could not answer...

    Page 253, Ex 8I, Question 3. After the first worker has finished activity C, why is activity F chosen over activity D, when D has the lowest late end time? This is skipped over in the worked solutions with no explanation.

    I'm not an expert on DM but is it because activity J cannot begin until G, H and I have all been completed and if you swap F and D over the minimum time that the project can be completed in is 26 days - or hours, not sure which it is as the solution gives days but the activities are in hours.

    The revised schedules for that option would be

    A-C-D-G-H with H finishing at 20 units

    B-E-F-I-J with J starting at 22 units and finishing at 26 units.

    Other options that I considered would have J starting before one of H or I was complete which is not allowed.
