This paper presents a method for finding critical path in the fuzzy project network. Trapezoidal fuzzy numbers are used to represent activity times in the project network. We also apply two ranking procedures on fuzzy numbers one using individual ranking of fuzzy numbers and other using set of fuzzy numbers to proposed critical path method. Comparison reveals that the ranking of fuzzy numbers using set of fuzzy numbers is better compare to the individual ranking of fuzzy numbers in finding critical path of a project network.
