Figure 3: At third step, manually enter 2 (for ID 2, cost $100) rather than automated selection of 3;4;5 costing $140.
NB. Method is by inspection: check step cost per automated calculations against other activities that could be crashed. If automated cost is greater than other options, press Undo, then run the program again and manually enter the required Task ID to proceed.
